The Legendary Sarah Liengu Etonge has scaled the 4095 meters above sea-level chariot of the Gods in a race to highlight 'Peace and Unity' as Cameroon's pride, dignity and hope for its developmental vision. Her exploits came during the Mount Cameroon race on Saturday, February 25, 2017. With more than 350 athletes participating, the mother of more than 5 children and 55 years old, in good sports-health, challenged the odds and raced up the mountain in less than six hours. With thousands of guests flocking Buea Municipality, Cameroon's German colonial capital, to cheer on the athletes, Buea was in a festive mood. On show was also immaculate sports infrastructure at the envy of the city's detractors. Sara Liengu Etonge was received at the finish line by Cameroon's minister of Sports, Mr Bidoung Mpkwat. Though beaten to fifth position in the female category, Sarah Etonge received accolades and gifts from supporters, sponsors and other well-wishers. Mount Cameroon race of hope is an annual event, with the winners in either the male or female category each taking home at least US$ 25,000 as prize money.
