WEIGHTLIFTINGBY JOHN PANGKATANA More gold and more glitter for the Hanuabada mum. While the glint may have lost a bit of that shine, it certainly hasn’t lost its glitter.Touted the golden mum, long time Papua new Guinea, Oceania and Commonwealth champion weightlifter Dika Loa Toua finally broke the ice at the 16th Pacific Games by winning team PNG’s first three gold medals at Apia, Samoa, yesterday after two days of competition. Younger sibling Konio Toua threatened to make a play of the limelight when she hauled in three silver medals earlier in the 45kg class, but was more than happy to let her role model, mentor and coach take that mantle. Dika and Konio exhibit their medals Like Konio, Dika virtually breezed through the opposition to claim the snatch, clean and jerk, plus the overall best total gold medals in a show of class. She had every opportunity to test the Indian and Canadian lifters in the Commonwealth category, but seemed content to just get over the line with … [Read more...] about Toua breaks the ice with triple gold win

The fire fox runs at such great speed across the sky that sparks fly from his tail, streaking bright colours across the heavens. If you check out the Mozilla search engine logo, you will note how he wraps himself around the globe; but to see the fire fox’s resplendent light show in all its glory – to witness the Northern Lights – you must travel to the far north on a clear, dark winter’s night. He rewards those who brave the cold. Twice a week, the FinnAir flight from Gatwick deposits unprepared Brits in Ivalo, a village 230 km south of the Arctic Circle. The polar night here lasts 43 days from late November until early January, and when I stepped out of the airport terminal in the late afternoon, it was a “balmy” minus 23 celsius. I inhaled sharply, felt my tonsils shiver, and burrowed into my backpack for a second pair of gloves to pull on over the first. Finns must learn to drive on ice before they can pass their test, which is just as … [Read more...] about Trek across the ice fields of Finland on a Northern Lights tour

Not quite. Leaving alone differences of scale - Estonia is only home to just over a million people, not the seven billion spread globally - as we'll see, ice bucket produced a tangible legacy and was clear in its direction, not something we can apply to Kõigi Eesti so much.The ice bucket challenge got an astonishing amount of exposure, with notables including former US President George W. Bush, as well as then-President Barack Obama, taking part.Then one day it just stopped. No similar challenge replaced it and, whilst it was the intention of its originators to make the event an annual one, I haven't seen a single clip of newer ice bucket challenges since.It was a summer fling, a diversion, which melted into obscurity almost as abruptly as it emerged once autumn came, going the oft-trod way of Pokémon GO and fidget spinners. And it really did die too – a quick search online shows some of the top resulting videos were last commented on four years ago. Given that … [Read more...] about Opinion: Kõigi Eesti – the ice bucket challenge of our times?
