PNG athletes in great form

PNG athletes in great form

PNG athletes are in great form as the outdoor season gets underway in the USA. Both Peniel Richard and Rellie Kaputin registered very significant performances in the long jump last weekend in Texas, leaping 7.57m and 6.41m respectively. Although both performances were marginally wind assisted  and therefore not recognised as national records, they are both well over the national record marks of 7.21m and 6.27m respectively. Adrine Monagi also demonstrated her high level of fitness as she completed six track and two field events in one day including an eyebrow raising 13.82 seconds  (wind assisted) for the 100m hurdles  ; 11.92 for the 100m (+3.0) and a personal best shot put of 11.34m. Such windy conditions make it tough for distance runners but this did not stop Poro Gahekave from completing the 3000m steeplechase in an excellent time of 11min 49 seconds. Over in the city of Maryville, Missouri Afure Adah continued  the great form she showed indoors with another top 100m run of 11.74seconds (+2.4). Conditions were very windy indeed over in Kansas where Wesley logorava was propelled by winds of around 6.0 to 7.0 metres per second to times of 10.61 secs and 21.36 seconds in the 100m and 200m respectively.
