In our June 2015 special Sports Issue, Gyasi showed us his stylish side in for our editorial cover shoot. He’s what you’d call a classic man. In his interview, he mentioned how much he loves fashion and getting dressed up. He also shared with us, the inspiration for his colorful hairstyle. Make no mistake, this is one athlete that is serious about his craft. Thanks a million, Gyasi, for a cool shoot.
