Wisil to return to PNG

PNG’s sprint queen, Toea Wisil, has announced that she will be returning to PNG next week to prepare for her 4th Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April, 2018.

Wisil just competed at the VAN2017 Pacific Games and despite facing some personal challenges that hindered her training schedule in Australia, she is determined to make the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Wisil began her athletics career in Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province, where she was first discovered as an athlete in 2003 at the PNG Games.

She says it is now time to return to complete her journey back home and give back to PNG.

2017 was a successful year for Wisil, but it also brought many personal challenges and she says she’s ready to give 2018 her best shot.
