ASTONISHING END TO MIXED TEAM EVENT AS FIJI WIN GOLD IN BADMINTON

Fiji took no prisoners in their match against Kiribati this morning. Fresh from a top result against the second seeds, New Caledonia, the team fielded their strongest players, with the greatest challenge coming in the women’s doubles.

Kiribatians, Tinabora Tekeiaki and Teitiria Utimawa, were en route to 100% success rate in the women’s doubles within the mixed team event, before the more-experienced sisters, Karyn and Andra Whiteside, won the close contest 21-13 15-21 21-16
