Dika Tries Out Turkmenistan

Papua New Guinea’s Commonwealth and Pacific Games champion, Dika Toua, would be amongst the mix in the women’s 53kg category on day 4 of entire 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games.

Dika was hoping to use the AIMAG as a stepping stone to better her preparations for next year’s Gold Coast games.

But the Commonwealth gold medalist would face stiff competition in the women’s 53kg category. 74kg in her first attempt in the snatch, followed by a confident 78kg in her second.

But a stumble in her attempt to hit 81 was a disappointment, falling short of her Oceania record.

In the clean and jerk, however,Toua would perform better,100 on her first and 104 in her second laying the platform for her third- a stirring 108kg lift.

But it was Kristina Shermatova’s 107 and 196 total that was ultimately too much for Toua.

The day before, Thelma Toua also experienced her debut on the Asian regional stage.

Later on tonight (Turkman time) 27-year-old Morea Baru takes his shot in the Men’s 62kg.

But both Toua sisters along with the rest of the PNG contingent are doing well, on Friday Steven Kari has hiscrack in these Asian games.
