Holland In for Solomon Bockarie
Sierra Leone is on the verge of losing another potential after the Holland national athletics team last week extended invitation to one of Sierra Leone finest young athlete. Solomon Bockarie was born May 18, 1987 in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
He is a Sierra Leonean athlete competing in 100m and 200m. Solomon has initially competed for Sierra Leone in the Cadet Athletics Championship winning gold in both 100m & 200m.
He was part of Sierra Leone`s contingent at the ECOWAS Championship in Burkina Faso.
Solomon a week past Sunday joined the Holland team training session for the first time ahead of the European Championship in Zurich.
According to Solomon the invitation is welcoming. He said: “Every athlete is looking for such opportunity and I’m happy to be part of the Dutch national team,” he told Awareness sports. Details in our next edition
