Papua New Guinea’s squash star Madako Suari Junior was also part of the team representing squash during the meet as he spoke highly of the summit.

“It was a really good experience for us athletes especially as we always focus on training  all the time but through this training we are now able to balance the equation both on and off the field,” Madako said.

Adding that, it helps us to also lead not only in training but off the field as well and in our local communities and areas that we live in.

“It helps us to understand ourselves clearly as well and helps us outside and how to do better in our respective games that we professionalized in,” he stated.

“It’s a good experience for me as an individual and I hope for more of this to come.”
