National Olympic Committee under the leadership of Dr Coker has scored several goals, the one being the International Coaching Enrichment Certificate Programme(ICECP) received by Musa Emmanuel Mansaray [Pajero] from the athletics association.
The programme was awarded to Musa by the National Olympic Committee through the IOC
Last year, September 2013, Musa was invited to take part in the International Coaching Enrichment Certificate Programme [ICECP] in USA at the University Of Delaware. He took one month in Delaware and headed for Colorado Spring for two weeks. Back home, as the programme stated, Musa wrote series of programmes and sent the report to USA every month.
In April 2014, he was invited to take in the last stage of the programme in Swaziland from April 23rd 30th 2014. At the end of the last stage, Musa was awarded Certificate of International Coaching Enrichment Certificate Programme because of his excellent performance during the course.
After returning from Swaziland, he has been ordered by the National Olympic Committee to write projects to develop athletics in Sierra Leone, which will be amended before approval. This movement by the NOC is a blessing in disguise for the development of Athletics in the country.
Musa ‘pajerol’ started his athletics coaching career when he retired as an active sprinter few years back. As a teacher at the Ahmadiyya Secondary School, he started with the Camp Canada Athletics Club, which is based in the school.
In the last congress, Musa was elevated to the position of Marketing and Organizing Secretary for the National Association; Sierra Leone Athletics Association [SLAA]-a position he still maintains.
