The PNG Air Grand Prix Series currently underway at Sir John Guise stadium.
The PNG Air Grand Prix Series is an elite-level competition aimed principally at those athletes vying for places in teams to international events next year.
The program also caters to those national athletes participating in events for which there are not many competitors and is also a talent ID exercise for those events.
