Dana Baker Named University Of Ghana 2015/2016 Best International Athlete

Dana Baker, a Yale Fox International fellow and a visiting graduate research fellow at the Institute for Environment and Sanitation Studies (IESS) at the University of Ghana (UG) has been adjudged Best International Student Athlete for 2015/2016 academic year.

Dana participated in a number of swimming competitions including inter-halls swimming competition, National Open Championships held in Kumasi, and 2016 Bi-lateral Games  between University of Ghana and University of Ibadan from Nigeria held on Legon campus. She also competed in a few others held in Accra.

Dana Baker, who has completed her one year programme at the IESS revealed in an article published on the university's website that, though she joined the university swimming team with the initial hope of staying healthy over the duration of her one-year fellowship, her participation in sports and daily training with the team has offered her much more than merely the chance to stay healthy as it helped to broaden her perspective regarding life on campus and has also allowed her to make diverse network of friends, outside her academic discipline.

She thanked her teammates, UG sports directorate and coach for their support throughout her stay at the university.
"My overall experience at the University of Ghana would be very different, and conceivably much less enjoyable, without the daily support of the team, the UG sports directorate, and Coach BB. To that end, I give great thanks!", she said.
