Geua Recognizes Fellow Commonwealth Gold Medallists

The first Papua New Guinean Commonwealth gold medallist, Geua Tau, compliments Steven Kari and Dika Toua for achieving gold at the 20th Commonwealth Games.

Geua Tau says it all comes down to effort and determination in achieving the best possible results.

 

The First Papua New Guinean Commonwealth gold medallist compliments Steven Kari and Dika Toua in achieving gold at the 20th Commonwealth Games.

 

She says hard work paid the price and brings out the true champions at the highest level.

 

She is now a mother of 3 with 6 grandchildren. She was the first Papua New Guinean gold medallist in the 1990 14th Commonwealth Games in New Zealand.

 

She was 32 and remembers it like it was only yesterday; when she beat New Zealand’s Millie Cecelia Khan 25-18 in the Lawn Bowls Women’singles division.

 

She was unbeaten in all her games, right up to the final. Twenty-four years on, she still remains a humble champion, yet her winning momentum could not be easily erased and should be counted.

 

She was thankful to the Motu Koita Assembly for recognizing her achievement with K5, 000.

 

She complimented Ryan Pini, Dika Toua and Steven Kari for building PNG’s gold tally.

 

Ryan Pini was our 2nd gold medallist in the 2006 Commonwealth Games. He won the men’s 100m butterfly event in swimming, with a time of 52.64 seconds.
