2016 Olympic: A Conversation With Liberian Olympian Emmanuel Matadi

  Emmanuel Matadi will be representing Liberia at the Olympic in August 2016.  As he prepares for his trip to Rio de Janeiro, the Olympian had a quick conversation with C Liberia Clearly. 

What is the selection process to represent Liberia at the Olympic?

Liberia don't have an Olympia trial like the United States because we are few.  There is a standard used and I met the standards for the men's 100 and 200 meters.  

How long it took to prepare?
I have been training for this year's Olympic since October of 2015.  
How confident are you about your performance?
 
I am very confident that I will be bringing home the gold medal and I am very excited about that.  This is my first Olympic and I am well prepared.  

Which one of the race do you prefer, 100 or 200? 

I prefer the 100 meters because it is more enjoyable and honestly, it is shorter.  
Do you have any message for your fans? 

I appreciate all the support I am receiving. It is important that if someone is doing well,  we share their story.  

We wish Emmanuel a successful experience.
