Team Australia to the Pacific Games is enthusiastically counting down the days to their debut appearance.  

In what will be the first step taken towards an expanded continental games, both Australia and New Zealand will participate in rugby sevens, sailing, taekwondo and weightlifting.

With the opening ceremony only four weeks away, Australia’s Chef de Mission, Malcolm Page, says that Australia is excited about taking their first step towards being a permanent part of the Pacific Games.

Page believes that in the long term, the move makes sense, and said that Australia and New Zealand are in the Pacific and shared love for the region, saying that it was great for them to be part of the games.

Australia’s Chef de Mission added that competition was going to be tough; with Pacific athletes being some of the best in the four sports to be contested.

He says that he expected this year’s games to be taken to a whole new level by PNG; having been in the country a few months back, he said the atmosphere and culture of Papua New Guinea was really shining through. And he was adamant that the 2015 Pacific Games would be an impressive event for the Pacific.
