National Records to Jenni Keni at the Olympic P

National Records to Jenni Keni at Olympic Preparation Camp in Cairns
Monday, 2nd August 2004
At an arranged competition held on Sunday during the HPTC - Oceania arranged Pre Olympic Preparation Camp in Cairns, Jenni Keni (SOL) broke her own National Record in the 200m with a time of 25.6 (h). The only woman in a race that included John Howard (FSM), Russell Roman (PLW), and Moses Kamut (VAN), Jenni ran exceedingly well to shave 0.3 sec off her Solomon Island National Record. Earlier in the afternoon, Jenni set a new Solomon Islands record for the 100m, running 12.6 sec, and repeating this time in a second race over 100m. John Howard equaled the National Record of Federated States of Micronesia, running 10.7 sec in the second of two 100m races. Moses Kamut (VAN) and Russell Roman (PLW) both ran personal bests in the 200m, whilst Evangeleen Ikelap (FSM) ran a personal best time in the 100m.

It was the first competition for a while for many of the athletes who are attending this Pre-Olympic Preparation Camp, but it was an ideal opportunity for many of them to compete in ideal conditions on a good surface.

The competitions were held in warm and still conditions, - conditions that are proving ideal for these athletes as they prepare for Athens. With another ten days of preparation left before they depart for Athens, there is optimism that all will improve and perform to their best in Athens.

Athletes from Vanuatu, Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, and the Solomon Islands took part in the competition on Sunday. Another competition has been scheduled for Thursday, when athletes from the Cook Islands and Kiribati will have joined in the Preparation Camp.
