4.What will you be doing for the remainder of your time in London?
I will spend a few days with my mother, support and cheer on my teammates, my training partners, watch some other athletes compete in different sports, go sightseeing and enjoy the closing ceremony.
5.How’s the Olympic Village & any shoutouts for your fans to add to the site?
The Olympic Village is cool. There are a lot of choices of food and things to do. It can be compared to walking around a compound of super humans (lol that was only a joke) but I am enjoying my time here.
Yes, a special shoutout to EVERYONE that has ever said a prayer for me, sent well wishes, posted on Facebook or twitter about team Liberia. I Love You guys. The support is amazing. Also to My family, my amazing friends, St. Johns U family, and the JfK high school family.
