Vanuatu Paralympic mourns the loss of Felix Willie

Willie died at Vila Central Hospital on Saturday.

Vanuatu Paralympic Coach, Deni Kalega said Willie was a promising football player but had his left leg removed through cancer.

“Felix was very strong in the upper body so Seated Javelin and Seated Shotput were obvious sports for him. “

The late Willie joined the parathletics squad and impressed his coaches Deni Kalenga and Odile Siro.

He demonstrated that athletes must be committed to training if they are to succeed.
