first_imgThey came with one thing in mind – a clean sweep of Gold, Silver and Bronze in the 200 metre sprint in their division but they missed this aim by a hair’s breath.The three 1- year-old students from Popondetta Primary school were not disappointed though as they still picked up the Gold and Silver medals through Kenis Koko and Abraham Torovi respectively while Lindsey Oki was just edged out by a stronger opponent from Jiwaka to steal ‘their’ Bronze medal.“We are very happy to be able to do this for our province. We came here not knowing what we were up against as it is our first time but we surprised ourselves as well when  nearly made a clean sweep” said Abraham for his mates. The official records they clocked have not been released but according to Rachael Yaga, their Team manager they did very well and are possible candidates for the Melanesian Athletics Championship in Fiji from the 13th to the 15th of next month.Caption:  From Left: Lindsey Oki, Kenis Koko and Abraham Torovilast_img
