Tyler’s Win Delights Mum
Dr. Oripa Waqa is the first female oral surgeon specialist in Fiji and the Pacific region.

Tyler Krenkels, 11, won the 500metres and 1km during the Mana Ocean Swim competition last Saturday

Competing for the first time in the annual event, Krenkels did not expect the win.

“To be honest I did not even train for this, I was just here to enjoy the beautiful weather and to also accompany my Mum,” he said.

Proud Mum Christie Krenkels could not describe how happy she was for her son’s achievement.

“I’ve been in this tournament for quiet sometime now, so I’m not new to it at all and I just love coming to Fiji,”she said.

“But I could only bring Tyler over for this competition since his two brothers had to stay back with my husband and I’m so happy with his performance.

“This is Tyler’s first experience in Fiji and something tells me that this will not be the last.”

She finished first in the 3km swim clocking 41.15 minutes.
