The PNG High Performance Centre of Excellence has started a new initiative for all elite athletes in the country, where by a monthly award is given to an athlete whose attendance is up to scratch.
This initiative was put together by the centre to encourage all athletes to be more focussed and continue their training in preparation for both national and international events.
This month will see the first giveaway of fitness packs to an elite athlete who has been consistent in focusing on his or her training since the first day of the month. The giveaway of the packs is to encourage athletes, to get into the habit of training, and also to become more aware of their own fitness level, so that they can be trained by coaches and staff to maintain their fitness levels.
The presentation and announcement of the monthly pack winner will be made at the end of this month, which will also be the first award of the new initiative set up by the PNG High Performance Centre of Excellence.
