'Snow leopard' man is ski sensation

This man is nicknamed the 'snow leopard'. He grew up in the African country of Ghana where it never snows.

Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong learnt to ski when he came to England six years ago and worked on a dry ski slope. There he got his leopard nickname and even got a spotted snow suit to match!
