16-year-old Lolohea Naitasi has won a silver medal for Fiji in Taekwondo.

Naitasi lost to her Papua New Guinea opponent in the women’s 62kg category final but says just to win a medal at the Pacific Games is more than enough.

“As this is my first time representing Fiji and also at a very young age, it is a very good experience and I wish that could get a medal and I got it.”

They will face the Solomon Islands in their second match at 9pm today.
