Someone called “Team PNG” has responded to the article calling for an explanation as to why Commonwealth gold  medalist, Steven Kari, was not  included in the PNG team to Rio.

The response stated: “Both Dika and Steven’s form were not good enough to qualify for the Olympics. Hopefully they get back into full time training for the 2018 Commonwealth Games. On current form Morea Baru is PNG’s number 1 weightlifter.”

Post Office Blog also understands that the promised K100,000 per gold medal promised to athletes  were never paid or if paid, Kari and Dika were paid only some of the amount.

Sources close to the Kari hinted that the payments were  disbursed by the Weightlifting Federation.

Can people within the weightlifting fraternity  clarify this?  If not,  I fear our weightlifters may have been used  and dumped.

Kari and Dika have refused to be dragged into the squabble.
