TOEA WISIL last night stamped her authority as the Pacific’s sprint queen when she comfortably cruised home for the 100 metre gold in Noumea, New Caledonia.
Fellow countrywoman Helen Philemon began well from the inside lane but was run down by the Fijians 50 metres out.
The two Fijians went on to fill the minor placings ahead of Philemon [fourth] and Vanessa Waro [fifth].

Our Track and field athletes have almost shut out most of the other contenders…. PRRROUD!
