EMMANUEL MATADI WILL CARRY LIBERIAN FLAG

Liberia’s 100 and 200 meter representative, Emmanuel Matadi, will carry the Lonestar Banner into Rio’s Olympic Stadium. This makes him the 11th Liberian to have this honor. Eleven is a significant number for Liberia. The flag has 11 stripes and Liberia’s Declaration of Independence has 11 signatures. Cheers to our 11th flag bearer. Congrats Matadi!
