The National, Friday 14th of February, 2014
PAPUA New Guinea star Toea Wisil added the 60 metres title to her list of national records while competing at the Gold coast recently.
The Jiwika express, who already holds the 100 metres, 200m and 400m records, clocked a time of 7.46 seconds in the 60m to eclipse the record of 7.48 seconds run by Mae Koime in Brisbane seven years ago.
Nelson Stone announced his intentions for 2014 with a strong comeback to racing in Brisbane last weekend with an impressive 21.68 seconds in the 200m in his first competition after eight months.
The year 2013 was one that Stone would rather forget as two separate hamstring injuries ruined his season. However there were no signs of that as he warmed up with a 100m in 10.86 seconds and then ran an excellent 200m. Stone is now looking forward to the Queensland Championships next month and the Australian National championships in April. Betty Burua was also in action last weekend clocking a personal best 24.81s in the 200m, after registering 39.54s in the 300m.
