This was from the press guide. A copy of this has been uploaded to dropbox with the poorly named title of 2012-08-25 09 something.pdf. The information can almost certainly be independently verified on the Paralympic website schedule. --LauraHale (talk) 08:14, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

ExplanationEdit

I looked at the Sierra Leone one and realised while I had three paragraphs, they were very short. I felt I should combine two of them and add something more substantial. Sadly, not much out there about them. (Hopefully, as things progress, I can get pictures.) Anyway, hence the inclusion of Liberia --LauraHale (talk) 08:31, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
