Our golden lifter confident of more gold

Papua New Guinea veteran weightlifter Dika Toua is confident of bagging a gold medal on her home soil.

The golden girl of PNG weightlifting arrived back in the country this afternoon from New Caledonia after spending the last three months training at the Weightlifting Institute there.

Toua will be competing in the 53kg weight division and said she is “definitely going for gold” but expects a strong challenge from Australia and New Zealand female weightlifters.

“I will be doing my best and let the result come.”

The Commonwealth champion added that after returning from Glasgow Commonwealth Games and taking time off to spend with family, the three months of training has put her back in top form.
