‘Team Liberia to China Olympics is on Course’

first_imgDespite the recent cancellation of Liberia’s representation to the on-going handball competition in Lome, Togo due to the outbreak of Ebola virus in the country, the chief of mission of Liberia’s delegation, to Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic in the People’s Republic of China, Fred Pratt has said that Liberia is still course, preparing for the games.Pratt told the Daily Observer yesterday that final documentations for Liberia’s participation have already been sent by the Organizing Committee to be filled in and subsequently returned before this weekend.Though, he did state what information is being requested but sources said it concerns personal information, including the current healthy status of athletes and other members of the delegation.Pratt said the two Liberian teenaged athletes, Tracy Chayee, 16 and Momolu Sambai, 17, are “very well and training and will serve as ambassadors to hoist the Liberian flag in China at the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games.” The games will run from August 16-28.Miss Chayee will run the 400m Hurdles while Momolu Sambai will compete in the 50m freestyle swimming event.The chief of mission disclosed that the team will depart the country on Tuesday, 12 August 2014, noting that bulk of the expenses will be underwritten by Olympic Solidarity of the International Olympics Committee (IOC).He indicated that prior to the departure each member of the 7-man delegation will produce an ‘Ebola Clarence’ certificate from the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.Meanwhile, it has been realized since the deadly Ebola virus is not contacted merely by contact, except, “contact with someone who is acutely infected, and by the dead body of someone who has died by the virus,” it does not make sense for sports officials to cancel sporting programs.Knowing that someone who is acutely infected will not be active, strong, healthy or enthusiastic in going outside of his/her home and since such person will be helpless, broken down, there is no need why sports should be suspended in the country, knowledgeable sports lovers told the Daily Observer.
