Records Tumble at Micronesian Championships

Monday, 19 December 2005

 

A total of 19 records were broken at the Micronesian Sub-Regional Championships which were conducted in Saipan on the 14th and 15th of December. The records which were initially set at the inaugural Sub-Regional Championships held in Palau in 2003 are a testiment to how far our athletes in Micronesia have developed in the ensuing 30 months.

 

Palau's, Ngerak Florencio lead the charge with records in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 400 metres, proving that her time at the Oceania High Performance Training Centre in Auckland is certainly paying off.
