Quote Of The Day
“Some days I get no food at all. I wash in public toilets and sleep in the park. I wake up around 4am and if I’ve got a bus pass I get on the night bus and sleep there until morning. … Some days I don’t think I’m going to make it and just feel like killing myself. My dream is to become one of the best sprinters in the world but I don’t see how that can happen now.”
“… after everything I’ve been through I’m determined not to give up hope. … If I had not come to the Commonwealth Games I probably would have died of Ebola along with the rest of my family. I believe I was meant to survive so I can succeed in my dream to be the best sprinter in the world.”
