Vale Terry Seph

Vale Terry Seph

It is with great sadness that Athletics PNG reports the untimely passing of Terry Seph in Kavieng yesterday afternoon. Terry was a member of the 4*100m relay squad which attended the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. At the time he was our 5th best over 100m and was a relay reserve. His auto timing personal best of 11.18 seconds was made in Marietta, Georgia, in a warm-up meet for the Olympics. His best hand held time was 10.7 seconds was set in Port Moresby in 1995.

Terry attended the 1995 SPG in Tahiti, but could not get on the relay team, which won the gold medal and set the  PNG National of 40.29 seconds which still stands today – Peter Pulu, Subul Babo, Alan Akia and Amos Ali.

Terry was a fine sprinter who emerged when PNG 100m sprinting was at its strongest ever, and he ended up being a reserve on the 4 x 100m Relay Team in important meets. He did, however, compete in the 1997 Mini SPG in Pago Pago and reached the final of the 100m, and was part of the silver medal winning relay team in the 4 x 100m.   Terry holds the equal fastest hand timing for the 60m event – 6.7 seconds (along with Baobo Neuendorf, Amos Ali and Peter Pulu).
