The Tuvalu Weightlifting Federation has named three athletes to compete at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa this coming September.
Coach Bryce Moses said the trio includes 15 year old Isaia Elisaia who will compete in the Men’s 69 kg category, Manuila Rooby also 15 competing in the men’s 56kg category and Togafiti Eliko, a 16 year old girl competing in the women’s 75 kg category.
The trio will make up a four-member team from Tuvalu that will travel to Samoa for the game later this year.
“We have three lifters who are currently undergoing extensive trainings every day,” Coach Moses said.
President of the Weight-lifting Federation Talavai Iona said the selection was made last year after they witnessed the determination and promptness of these lifters at training sessions.
The participation of the three weightlifters are co-sponsored by the Tuvalu Association of Sports and the Commonwealth Games Council.
