Among the welcoming party were Minster of Sport Stephen Lashley and Senator Dr Esther Byer-Suckoo who previously held the sports portfolio.
Also on hand were two former presidents of the Athletics Association in Esther Maynard and Noel Lynch, while principal of The St Michael School, Shelton Perkins and coach Gabriel Burnett led a large group of students who turned out to welcome home schoolmate Belle.
A reception was later held at the Accra Beach Hotel for the pair.
