Prior to becoming an attorney, Edward “Eddie” Neufvile was an accomplished collegiate and international athlete. Edward W. Neufville is one of the University of North Carolina’s greatest international competitors of all-time, having made Olympic and World Championship teams for his native Liberia. As a member of the 4×100-meter relay team, he competed at the 1996 Summer Olympics and the 1997 World Championships in Athletics, setting a Liberian national record on both occasions.
“I felt very blessed, honored and fortunate to have competed at the Olympic Games for my country at such a young age (19 years old). It was a feeling of accomplishment and also a feeling of giving back to Liberia. Liberia was in a civil crisis in 1996. The opportunity to represent Liberia and provide a positive picture of Liberia was satisfying. It was out of this world!” – Edward Neufville, 1996 Olympics for Liberia
