Perhaps 2 years ago, Michael Foster had the brilliant idea that the members of the Sierra Leone Olympic Team might like to acclimatise themselves in Hastings UK. After long delays, it finally happened! Two fine SL athletes qualified – Ola Sesay (long jump -5th or 6th in the world) and Ibrahim Turay (200 metres) – and spent a week in Hastings, accompanied by a small team of officials and members of the press. The athletes trained at William Parker Sports College, had a packed programme of visits arranged by the Link and Hastings Borough Council, and were interviewed by BBC TV. The Link is very grateful to the Headteacher and staff of William Parker Sports College, to the White Rock Hotel which generously provided the accommodation, and to local sponsors who made it all possible. Here is a selection of pictures taken on the day the SL delegation was taken to the Olympic Village, followed by the delegation’s official press release.
