Tony Lomo 2012 Olympic hero

Dear Editor,

I feel very emotional to see life coverage of Tony Lomo our Judo representative for the 2012 London Olympic Games beating Sigauque Neuso of Mozambique. As I watched the game I wondered how can such an athlete coming from a country where sport is not prioritise and facilities are hardly seen, had to perform superbly well like that.

I have a strong belief in the empowerment of our young people because they are the countries future.

Tony is a brilliant ambassador and his success is an inspiration to all Solomon Islanders.

Congratulations Tony. You are truly a Solomon Islands hero.
