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!
