Charles Ssekyaya has been crowned the Nile USPA sports personality for the month of March after he won the African Weightlifting championships last month in Nairobi.

Ssekyaya managed to collect 715 points beating off competition from Rally ace and 2010 national rally

champion, Nasser Mutebi who won the Mosac rally in Masaka with the latter collecting 580.

Ssekyaya didn’t only win the event but also qualified for the London Olympics, making him the 10th athlete to reach the feat after nine runners.

The National U20 Handball team finished third for winning the International Handball Federation zone five Championships in Nairobi last month.

Ssekyaya currently based in the USA will be awarded with his plaque and cash price next week at the Uspa monthly dinner.
