The Solomon Islands National Olympic Committee (NOCSI) has revealed the name of the fourth athlete to represent the Solomon Islands in the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Female weightlifter, Jennilyn Wini is the fourth and final athlete to be named for London after it was confirmed this week.

The confirmation was revealed by the Oceania Weightlifting Federation (OWF) and received by the NOCSI secretary general, Fujiyama.

According to NOCSI, Ms Wini was accepted as the chosen athlete following her previous and recent performance for the local, regional and international competitions she participated in.

Ms Wini will now team up with the three other athletes, Pauline Kwalea, Chris Walasi and Tony lomo who are currently attending a pre-training camp in London.

However, reports from NOCSI say, Ms Wini will not be attending the pre-training camp; instead she will be returning to Oceania Weightlifting institute in New Caledonia for her final preparations.

This was requested by General Secretary of the OWF, Paul Coffa.

Wini will meet up with the Solomon trio just prior to the Olympic Games
