He became Gabon's first Paralympian when he competed at the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing. He raced in an ordinary wheelchair and was disqualified when he was about to be lapped by other competitors. In 2012 he returned to the Games in London, and this time he had a racing wheelchair. He was last in his 100m heat, but set a new personal best. (independent.co.uk, 09 Sep 2012)
