fsm team in beijing 08

FSM delegation to the World Olympics in Beijing finally came together under one banner after months of separate trainings at various locations, even outside of the FSM. For months, the swimmers spent time training in Guam with other Guam swimmers. Manuel Minginfil of Yap has spent several months away from home in a number of places where the Oceania Weightlifting Training Center has taken him. He was also under sholarship from the FSM National Olympic Committee through grants from IOC Solidarity Funds. Our two athletics sprinters have been training at their home bases: For Jack Howard, home means Guam. For Maria Ikelap, Chuuk has been her only home.

Our lifter, Minginfil, has done his bid by lifting on 8/11/08. Although he did not secure any medal, he did amuse the enthusiastic Chinese audience and the small size FSM delegation that included President Many Mori by his display of power and style in what might very well be his last international and Olympic showdown.

More information will follow.
