Normal, Sports

PAPUA New Guinea netball co-captain Mona-Lisa Leka is still excited about her meeting with Prince Charles yesterday.
She was with co-captain, Lua Rikis, and Raka Nope outside the Games Village dining hall in New Delhi, when the prince walked out.
The three had the opportunity to talk with Prince Charles and he shook hands with Leka before walking off.
He looked at her and asked how they were and she replied; “We are alright.”
“Where are you from?” the prince  asked.
“Papua New Guinea,” Rikis replied.
He then asked which sport they were playing and Leka said netball which he replied; “Very good,” then walked off with his bodyguards and other officers.
 “It was an awesome experience,” Leka said after her memorable moment.
 “He gave time to talk to us, he faced us and talked to us, shook our hands before walking off.
 “It was a great honour to meet him,” Leka said.
She said this was their first Commonwealth Games and they were really fortunate to meet the head of the commonwealth.
The prince’s visit was to see how athletes were living in the Games Village and show support to them and the Commonwealth Games.
