Pacific 2022 mini-games: the summary of Tuesday, June 21

Entry into the game of golf and athletics, new medals for our Cagous in va’a and success in badminton. Find the summary of the Mini-games of Saipan, in the Northern Mariana Islands, for this Tuesday, June 21.

The day started very early and in blazing heat for our golfers, on the grounds of the Coral Ocean Resort. And it is in an idyllic setting, at the edge of the water, that the eight Cagous started these Mini-games. “You have to be able to position yourself, take your bearings and be placed. This is the main“, specifies Eric Figueres, supervisor of the golf delegation.

Yesterday it was gold, today it’s silver and bronze. Our cagou rowers again won medals on Tuesday in Saipan. On the lake of 13e Fisherman Monument, the women won a bronze medal in the V6 over 1500 meters. “We may have a bit of a technical fault at the bend, which caused a bit of a delay for the rest, which was difficult to catch up. But we are not blushing, third place remains a podium“, details Marcy Manate, rower.

Still in V6, but over 500 meters they won the silver medal, behind the Tahitian women.
