Triathlon Supports Opportunity to Clear Bosa

Investigations to find out why triathlete, Wilfred Bosa, was sent home early from the South Pacific Games received strong support from Triathlon Solomon Islands.

An internal investigation by Triathlon Solomon Islands executive suggests that all members of the triathlon team behaved professionally in Samoa and were good ambassadors for Solomon Islands and the sport of triathlon.

Triathlon Solomon Islands has built a good reputation for producing professional, disciplined and well-behaved athletes, and is seeking to maintain this reputation.
The Triathlon Solomon Islands federation is formally writing to NOCSI to find out why Bosa was sent home early.

Bosa was deeply upset to be sent home early having trained hard to represent Solomon Islands. His departure badly affected the team's morale and overall performance at the Games.

Triathlon Solomon Islands says it does not tolerate incidents which bring the sport of federation into disrepute and treats claims of bad behaviour very seriously.
