Despite falling short of the gold medal in her recent competition at the Pacific Games 2023 in Honiara, Louisa is taking this experience as an opportunity for growth and is determined to come back stronger.

The young female boxer’s achievement is not only a personal milestone but also a source of pride for the Solomon Islands, showcasing the talent and dedication emerging from the country’s sports high performance development programs.

“I wish to thank SINIS for supporting me since the start of my preparations ahead of the XVII Pacific Games 2023 last year,” said Louisa, acknowledging the Institute’s crucial role in her development as an amateur boxing athlete.
