The women's events are over now, but it seems there are still some men's track and field events to go.
Moise Joseph - 800m
Jeffrey Julmis - 110m hurdles
Samyr Laine - triple jump
Here is a fundraising event page for the Haitian track team from earlier this year:
Part of the fundraising ad:
$49,120 to send eight athletes to the Olympics. I wonder if five of them qualified or if they were only able to send five because of the money? I hope the country is proud of those who were able to represent them, whatever the situation.

Only five of these made it to the actual Games, but who knows... 2016?
A random comment on the Olympics: I am watching a Bulgarian Olympic gymnast compete on the rings. He has grey hair. I love that. 39 years old, and he can still compete in gymnastics. Better yet, the reporter said he is one of the nicest guys around. Good for him.
