Wisil excited to return to PNG for Games

PNG’s sprint Queen, Toea Wisil says she is excited to return home for the Pacific Games in in July.

Wisil has been undergoing a rigorous training schedule, focusing on her base conditioning work in Gold Coast, Australia for several months now. She will return to PNG next month.

Toea has her eyes set on multiple gold medals at the Pacific Games as well as new national records in the 100metre and 200metre events.  She will also contest the 4x100metre and the 4x400metre relays.

Wisil said her training is going well but getting tougher as she is doing more endurance workouts now.

She added that she was enjoying the training and looking forward to the Games to make PNG proud on home soil.

“I feel confident in myself that I am going to win. Yes there are other girls from PNG and Fiji competing but I am feeling very good and am well prepared.

“I’m most excited to be returning home to compete amongst my fellow people. Papua New Guinea has done so much to help me succeed as a professional athlete and I hope to make everyone proud when I represent PNG at the Pacific Games,” said Wisil.

Wisilis the Oceania region’s number one ranked female sprinter in the 100m and 200m, having won both events at the Oceania Championships in Cairns earlier this month.

These wins have qualified Toea for entry into the 2015 World Championships in Beijing in August, which she will compete in following her participation in July’s Pacific Games.
