It has been nine months since the 2016 Summer Olympic games. Many Olympians have jumped right back into the groove of preparing for meets, including Liberia’s very own. Since the beginning of 2017 Emmanuel Matadi has competed in four meets.
Matadi ran the 100 meter race in 9.96s (+3.0 wind) at the Longhorn Invitational in Austin, Texas at Myers Stadium on April 29, 2017. This time ranks him at number six under Wind Assisted Marks on IAAF’s website. We wish him continued success!
