Tuvalua has never won a gold medal at the Pacific Games, only settling for silver and bronze in the past.Competing in powerlifting in the 120kg category, the 29 year old lifted a total of 337.5kg in the squat; 182.5kg in the bench press; and 285kg in the deadlift.He beat two other powerlifters from Nauru who settled for silver and bronze.Asked how he felt, a shy Ioesefa said he was a proud man but also surprised at how well he had done at the Games.He said he had only started fully training in 2013 and had not much international exposure.“I feel so proud to be the first to win gold for my country and make history. There will be big celebrations when I get back home to Tuvalu,” said Ioesefa.The small nation of Tuvalu has so far won two bronze in powerlifting and two silver medals in weightlifting for the Oceania Junior division at the 2015 Pacific Games.
Rumors about Mbappé’s future have soared in recent days after AS reported on Leonardo’s pressure measure, which is willing to let him go free in 2022 if he doesn’t renew, rather than accept any offer for him over the summer. from 2021.About his suitors, as is logical, any great world club would be interested in having Mbappé, although the French crack has never hidden his preference for Madrid, a club he was close to reaching when he signed for PSG and with whom he has winked constantly.The call of Klopp that they assure on this website has occurred adds another rival in the recruitment by the player, who If he maintains his pulse of not renewing his current contract with PSG (ends in 2022) he will be the center of all the rumors in the coming months. The Parisian team is willing to offer him a contract that places him at the same salary level as Neymar (above 30 million net per season), so the club that wants to hire him will have to approach that offer. Jurgen Klopp, according to the French website le10sport.com, has called Mbappé’s father to find out the situation of the French crack and assess whether it would be possible to approach his recruitment for the current European champion in the future.This website, however, also states that despite Klopp’s first-person call to the footballer’s environment, the English team would have few options to tackle a contract of this magnitude. They assure in this French medium, which is also echoed in England, that other teams such as Real Madrid, Juventus, City or United are the ones with the most options to make an operation of these economic characteristics viable.

They were down. They were up. They were down again and now they’re up again!The new lights at the LYIT in Letterkenny.The traffic lights at LYIT have created more debate than Roy Keane’s appointment as the Republic of Ireland assistant manager.And now they’re back on the agenda again. The traffic lights at the college on Port Road are currently being put back up today.The lights created controversy when they were erected at the start of the current college year.Many claimed the lights were not needed and that traffic flow actually increased in the area.Then suddenly the lights disappeared and many thought the council had decided to take them down altogether. But it transpired the company who put up the lights, Traffic Solutions Ltd, had not been paid for their work and the overall company had gone into examinership.The lights have remained down for a number of weeks but workers from the company are back today erecting the lights again!Let’s hope someone has seen the light after all of this!
