TOKYO — Joe Fahnbulleh's parents emigrated from Liberia and settled in Minnesota. He became a track star for Hopkins High and now runs for the University of Florida.

EBONY MORRISON SETS NEW PERSONAL BEST RECORD: ‘IT’S A BIG DAY FOR LIBERIA’

Tokyo, August 1—In an emotional post-semifinal race interview, Ebony Morrison thanked Liberia’s lead track coach Sayon Cooper; the Liberian attaché Kouty Mawenh; her personal coach Joey Scott; and all the Liberian people, who have cheered her on.

She has a lot to celebrate. Though she did not advance to the Olympic finals in the 100 meters hurdles, she set a new personal best record, running an impressive 12.74 seconds. Morrison’s current time makes her the new national women’s record holder and qualifies her for next year’s World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

“This is a big day for Liberia,” Cooper said. “Ebony just ran a national record, which means she’s the best Liberia has ever put forth in the 100 meters hurdles.”

Morrison competed in the fastest heat of the evening where Puerto Rico’s Jasmine Camacho-Quinn set a new Olympic record in 12.26 seconds. At the end of the event, Liberia ranked 12 out of the 22 semifinalists. The country has certainly left its mark on the track with Morrison’s performance. Read more...

St. Paul sprinter Emmanuel Matadi hopes to medal, create opportunities for others

There were times over the past five years when Emmanuel Matadi wasn't sure he wanted to keep running. He had achieved the Olympic dream — running for Liberia in Rio in 2016 — and experienced a few bad years on the track where he didn't know if he would be able to make it again.

But a couple of things kept him going.

One was disappointment. The 2016 Games did not go as planned. The 2009 St. Paul Johnson High School grad didn't advance to the semifinals in either sprint.

"I told myself, 'I'm not going out like that,' " said Matadi, who will run the 100- and 200-meter dashes for Liberia. The 100-meter prelims start at 9:35 p.m. Central on Friday, with the first round set to begin at 5:45 a.m. Saturday. "I'm like, 'Yo, I'm too good to go out the first round.' That's definitely in my mind. It's definitely some fuel." Read more...
