The delegation of runners in; Michaela Kargbo, Rebecca Ansumana, Agnes Mansaray who will be joined by Matu Davies a rising sprinter who resides and trains in Nairobi, Kenya will be led by former national sprinter James Davies (Turbo Ben) as Head of Delegation to the event.
The delegation was granted a late Visa by the US embassy in Freetown and because of this; there are several constraints to their travel plans. They are looking to raise money for tickets in a few days and also assistance for a training camp that will allow them to train together for the inaugural IAAF World Relays in the Bahamas exactly a month after the Penn Relays and subsequently the Commonwealth Games in Scotland slated for July 22nd 2014.
These international meets will help these young ladies gain the exposure they need as they prepare for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio Brazil set for the summer of 2016.
In the spirit of Easter, any Sierra Leonean at home and abroad willing to help this team of young ladies realize their dreams can send an email of their intentions to the general info contact email address at email@example.com which will then be passed on to the appropriate party concerned.
