Toea aims to end career in 2020

Papua New Guinea’s track star Toea Wisil plans to end her career on the tracks after the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Wisil said this when asked about her career today at the Jacksons International Airport on her way to Kokopo for the High Performance course program.

“2020 is going to be my last appearance when I attend the Olympics in Tokyo, this is my plan but any PNG female that is coming up I will be more than happy to be there for them and encourage them to get into the Tokyo 2020 Olympics,” Toea said.

Adding that for the 2019 Pacific Games in Tonga she will be there once again to represent the country on the track.

“At the moment since coming back from the 2016 Rio Olympics, I am working with my coaches and preparing for the World Athletics Championships in London in August 2017 and for the big one in 2018 which is the Commonwealth Games that will be held in Gold Coast,” she added.

With all that, Toea said she is ready to encourage any upcoming female athlete that will make up team PNG for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics after she is done.
