Priscila Tommy joins rest of the team in training this week

When Vanuatu Table Tennis Federation’s (VTTF) Anolyn Lulu informed of the comeback of a familiar and potential athlete to join Team Vanuatu-Table Tennis in preparations to VAN2017 PMG Daily Sport did not hesitate to catch up with the athlete.

The comeback into Vanuatu Table Tennis (VTT) was the appearance of a familiar potential and enthusiastic Priscila Tommy as she joins the rest of the Table Tennis (TT) team this week currently undergoing intensive training in preparations for the VAN2017 Pacific Mini Games.

It has been seven years since her absence with Priscilla being away on her home island in the Banks and Torres islands.

The 26 year old in her training this week looked confident and comfortable as she shaped up getting into the flow with hands on the racket and be back on the road once more before the PMG.

Ms Tommy has participated as a youth player on a high level together with her TT colleagues in single, doubles, mix and team categories in the past international and Regional competitions and has contributed to Gold, Silver and Bronze medals achievements. Tommy continues to be a defender with her unique “chopper” skill.

The most senior athlete of VTTF and role model of Anolyn Lulu have confirmed that Priscilla Tommy will be part of the Discipline’s team to undertake further intensive training together with the Vanuatu Delegation to depart for China soon.
