"Today, it's not Bolt against Gatlin. Everyone in the final has a chance."

Olivier Mwimba is a 29-year-old Congolese sprinter. Born in the DRC, he moved to South Africa at a very young age and studied accounting at the Tshwane University of Technology in Pretoria. His ambition is to do better at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games than he did at the previous edition in Tokyo 2020. At that time, he qualified after the preliminary round of the 100 meters in a time of 10.63 seconds.
