The entire country should stand up and be proud of the achievements of the three Gambians that participated in the London 2012 Games this summer in their various sporting activities. FIFA Gambian referee Bakary Papa Gassama was the referee on the night when New Zealand played Belarus in men’s football group stage game as well as being the fourth official at the men’s final between Brasil and Mexico.
Suwaibou Sanneh set two national records on his way to the semi-finals with Saruba Colley also joining the bandwagon by setting a national record in the women 100 meters with timing of 12.06 seconds.
Be very proud Gambia, this is a sign of the development of our athletics and how all Gambian Athletes should strive to improve everyday to prepare for Olympics in Rio in 2016
