MR Copeland wins a gold medal in the javelin event at the recent Pacific Games. We salute his great achievement.
But he talks of overcoming many challenges.
One is of being injured while competing.
Why is he allowed to compete or even travel to the games with this injury if he finds it so challenging?
If he chose to compete, please accept all the challenges including injury.
Another issue he talks about is traveling all the way to PNG.
Well so has every other athlete in attendance.
Maybe a wheelchair can be organised for Mr Copeland on his return flight to Fiji, similar to what was required by him on his last return from a Pacific Games.
