St Cyprian High School Kyabakadde Basketball captain Abdul Hakim has shown signs of great improvement after shaking off a head injury.

Sports injuries remain a big set-back to many sports personalities in the different spheres across the divide.

For obvious reasons, injuries retard high intensity deliveries and remain a key factor to many underperforming sprees among most sportsmen and women.

For the aforementioned reasons, injuries are given special care to enable the affected parties return to their A-game in the shortest period possible.

When Hakim Abdul, a star basketball player at St Cyprian High School Kyabakadde was injured during his team’s 75-34 victory over Mbale S.S, he was accorded the much needed first aid to enable quick healing.

This was during the 2023 Fresh Dairy Secondary School games at JOVOC basketball courts.

Abdul was stitched above the left eye after a cut sustained when he hit a post.
