PNG woman represents US in paddling

Kila Vare-Nixon from Elevala, Poreporena, in the nation’s capital, told Loop PNG that faith and her vision to represent US were the main drive that kept her on track to achieve her dreams.

“Two years ago, I tried out for team USA but didn't know what I was doing,” says Vare-Nixon.

“I wanted to find out what it would take to make team USA so I came home and went to work and started training for it.
