Tonga buoyant about medal hopes

Tonga chef de mission Vilnmu Takau is confident of bagging gold in boxing and bodybuilding in the Pacific Games.

Takau pulled a  rabbit out of the hat and dropped the challenge to other Pacific nations on arrival this afternoon in Port Moresby.

He added that his contingent is a young team and they are positive they will do well.

Tonga’s national flag will be represented in the XV Pacific Games by 108 athletes who will be taking part in 19 sporting codes out of the 28 games to be played.
