The President of the National Olympic Committee Henry Moore will depart the shore of Sierra Leone today for China to meet the rest of the Sierra Leone delegation in China that went for the games.
Speaking to Awoko sports President Moore said that he decided to departed later for the games as over the years after delegation are in certain games the organized sometimes requested for certain documents information that they need at the games and he had to attend to them
He cited an example were in the International Olympic Committee(IOC) send to him to send a boxer and a coach to the games after the Sierra Leone delegation has left for the games
He went further that it was a good decision why he stays behind as he was able to arrange the everything for the boxer and the coach to arrive in time for the games.
He stated that he also decided to stay because of the Para Olympic Games which Sierra Leone has to take part in China after the Olympic Games and we have not got any information considering the competition until now so why in China I will bring it up with the organizers that are responsible for the games.
President Moore went further that the Secretary General of NOC David Woobay supposed to accompanied him to the games but he will not be going so he has two functions to participate in China
And appeal to Sierra Leonean not to expect the two athletes to come home with medals as they are going to have exposure as Sierra Leone was unable to qualify for the games but if they are able to bring medals home we have to give them praise
