With LESS then 24 hours until the 2012 London Summer Paralympic Games begin, Liberia’s Paralympic Committee and athlete are welcomed into London’s Olympic Village. Today, Liberia and London exchanged gifts in honor of the 2012 Games. This is a BIG year for Liberia; Power Lifter, James Bobby “The Big” Siaffa, will be making HISTORY as the FIRST athlete to ever represent the country at a Paralympic Game. Siaffa entered the village with Coach Nagbe of Monrovia and Liberian Paralympic Committee Members. Bobby “The Big” is scheduled to compete on Tuesday September 4th in the Power Lifting Competition. This leaves SEVEN days until Liberia makes its debut in the Paralympics. The Opening Ceremony of this year’s game begins tomorrow August 29th; wish our representative well as he makes history for Our Dear Nation.
Feel free to revisit this page for images of the Welcoming Ceremony. Below are some photos of Bobby the Big and Committee Members.
