The retired 1500 m runner now also worked as a maid ,once a star for a beautiful country like Guinea Bissau is very sad and pathetic.

A prominent person in Guinea Bissau write on his Facebook wall, yesterday you were applauded, even upright by many to the highest, to the podium of the name of Guinea Bissau you won gold medals today were abandoned your luck.

He then went to say , in Guinea Bissau they only know how to award a failed politician and individualities Amilcar Cabral medal. Who did nothing for the country, merit they did not deserve but for athletes, musicians, players, writers, filmmakers and former freedom fighters of the homeland are not part of the citizens.
