Mr. Siueni Filimone will be representing Tonga in the upcoming Rio 2016 Olympic Games. He will participate in the 100 meter dash. The entry mark for the 100m is 10.16 of which is far behind Siueni’s 10.6 seconds personal best in the Oceania games held in Fiji last month.

“This is a great highlight of my career and the Olympic Games means that this is a new height that God has taken me” Mr Filimone told Tupou College news. This is a new height for Tupou College Athletics Academy as well and as the young students who wants to pursue their talents.

“For those to follow in my footsteps there is no limit to a God gifted talent and all they have to do is to work hard and give it their best.

Siueni is the second person from Tupou College to be an Olympian. Filipo Muller in 2004 was part of the Tongan Team but under an Olympic Invitation.
