Five Months Away To PNG Games

Last night, we revealed the second PNG Games Ambassador, our very own sprint queen, Toea Wisil. She was one of the prodigies identified in the first PNG Games in 2003 and has since excelled to international stardom.

That same platform that identified her is no more than 5 months away.

 

Given the importance of the PNG Games, government ministers and prominent figures shared their insight into how the Games can identify more local talent and how the country can ensure that this will be best the PNG Games.

 

Vice Chancellor of PNG’s University of Technology, Albert Schram, was delighted and looked forward to the arrival of 22 provinces for the PNG Games.

 

Vice Minister for Sports and Member for North East, Labi Amaiu, said the government has recognized the Games potential in identifying PNG’s sporting talents, and has ensured that they are committed to funding the PNG Games. Mr.

Amaiu said the PNG Games is also a tool to build better citizens for the country.

 

Pacific MMI’s Managing Director, Wayne Dorgan said the PNG Games is overshadowed by next year’s Pacific Games, but noted that the PNG Games administration was on track with preparations as opposed to the past.

 

More than nine thousand athletes from 22 provinces competing in 28 different sporting codes will unite in November’s 6th PNG Games, in Lae City, and ultimately, refine PNG’s selections for the 2015 Pacific Games and future international events.
