Ibrahim, aged 28, represents Mali in the 400 metre hurdles. In May 2007, he took part in an ACP seminar in Dakar, Senegal. This event was held for athletes from across the African continent and featured career coaching in a team environment, as well as one-on-one support.
Ibrahim commented: “The coaching has an immediate effect and changes a person right away. It is training for the whole of life, something we live everyday, everywhere and with everybody.”
