Emmanuel Matadi wraps up his Olympic debut with a 20.49 seconds run in Round 1 of the Men’s 200 meters. He ranks 30 out of the 76 athletes who competed. Liberia will not advance to the semi-finals, but both Matadi and Kromah have represented the nation well and made Liberians around the world proud.
Stay tuned. These athletes have a long road ahead of them to the next major competition. We might just see them next year at the World Athletics Championship in London. Let’s go Team Liberia!
