Personal best for Uaati in Italy !


Running in Lane 8 of Heat 1 (out of 12 Heats) of the M100m. in the WYC in Italy, Uaati achieved a PB of 12.21 secs. against a headwind of -0.7 in placing 8th.   His race was won by a Fijian (who did not eventually make the Final) in 10.70.   This will have been an overwhelming occasion for him, but an invaluable experience.

He is accompanied by KAA Vice-President, Eria Maeriua, and they are due back in Kiribati on Thursday (July 16) after another tiring, five-leg journey !

Uaati is one more example of I-Kiribati travelling overseas and being outclassed by most of the opposition, but still managing a PB !   An admirable quality !
