In his lap of honour he carried the flags of the Nederlands and

Curaçao (one of five island territories of the former Netherlands Antilles).

 

Liemarvin qualified for the final as the 9th fastest even though his time of 45.68 was a personal best.
He is pictured above during that race in full flow.

The withdrawal of Turkey's Yavuz Can gave him the 8th. place in the final
