Sensei Tony Hails had a busy few weeks in pre-training and online coaching at the Pacific Games in Port Moresby, PNG. He has been the Mentor Coach since 2008 and thoroughly enjoys this 4-yearly event.
In a fabulous result, the small Karate Fiji team were joint maximum gold medal winners with New Caledonia. They won 7 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze medals, the best of any sporting team from Fiji at the event.
The squad won 3 of the 4 prestigious team events: Women’s kata, Women’s kumite and Men’s team (in a thriller). All team members won a medal.
