Reports reaching Star Sports say Hellen has fallen in love with Cardiff and is extremely grateful for the opportunity handed to her from the Solomon Islands Paralympic committee, Government, province, family and sponsors to allow her to experience the pinnacle of Paralympic sport.
Her recent introduction to Paralympic sport in 2011 saw her receive a Universality Wild Card slot to compete in the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
This makes Hellen the first athlete to represent the Solomon Islands at a Paralympic Games following the IPC accepting the Solomon Islands membership to the Paralympic Family in December 2011.
Her first international competition took place at the Queensland Athletic Championships in Brisbane where she received a Provisional classification of F57.
Following her Wild Card allocation, Hellen has been entered into the F57 Shot put for London.
Hellen hails from the village of Tinggoa in the Rennel and Bellona Province.
