The head of the Solomon Islands' taekwondo team has thanked the country's Government and National Olympic Committee after a delegation travelled to Fiji for the Oceania Championships.
John Alick said the group were "honoured" after they received financial backing to make the journey to Suva.
"The Solomon Islands' taekwondo executive, the officials and athletes who attended the seventh Oceania Championship in Suva, Fiji, from November 25 to 27 would like to acknowledge the Solomon Islands Government and the National Olympic Committee of the Solomon Islands for the funding assistance enabling the officials to attend the Championships and Oceania Taekwondo Union meeting," he said to the Solomon Star News.
Alick also thanked the City Council in capital Honiara for the backing they give to taekwondo.
"We would also like to thank the Honiara City Council for availing their venue for our home based athletes' training and preparation," he said.
The Solomon Islands team in Suva included Katy Soapi and her ten and seven-year-old sons Leo and Finn, who competed in age-group events.
The country won one gold medal and two silvers.
Solomon Islands have never sent a taekwondo player to the Olympic Games.
