PNG’s Toe Wisil is Pacific’s sprint queen

By Andrew MOLEAN

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.

Starting from lane six, Wisil, who had played second fiddle to Mae Koime in the past, was quick off the block and was never threatened as she surged further ahead to breast the tape in 11.95 seconds.

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].

Five-time World Champion, Olympic Gold medalist and former 100m World record holder, Mr Maurice Greene (now retired) just presented the 200m Gold to our very own Toea Wisil.
Our Track and field athletes have almost shut out most of the other contenders…. PRRROUD! 🙂
