As Women’s History Month comes to an end, we would like to highlight the remarkable achievements of Liberia’s female Olympians. These trailblazers have not only represented the nation on the world stage but have also broken barriers and inspired generations. 

Liberia’s first female Olympian

Liberia’s first female Olympian, the iconic Dr. Grace Ann Dinkins, made history by competing in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Overall, Liberia has attended 13 Summer Games with a total of 53 athletes participating from 1956 to 2020. Dinkins’ presence opened the door for eight other women to walk through.

In the spotlight 

We have had the opportunity to interview Dr. Dinkins, Phobay Kutu-Akoi Lolik, and Kia Davis during our Olympian Spotlight series. The series gave GTL the opportunity to partner with the Liberian Olympians Association to tell their stories  and uplift their achievements.

2020 Olympian, Ebony Morrison, is currently on the pathway to qualify for Paris 2024 in the 100mH hurdles.

We cannot forget the women behind GTL. This platform began as a blog and has become a media platform and non-profit organization. Serving as the official media partner for the Liberia Olympic team, GTL made history by being the first Liberian outlet to attend the Games as accredited press. 

As we honor Women’s History Month, let’s continue to support and uplift women in sports and beyond, ensuring a more inclusive and equitable future for all.
