After 40 years of providing education, the La Selle Hohola Youth Development Centre is now one of 16 potential training venues identified and approved by the Venues, Infrastructure and Equipment Committee.
Minister for Sports and National Events, Justin Tkatchenko, delivered and presented a multipurpose boxing ring earlier yesterday at the La Selle Hohola Youth Development Centre.
With all current training and sports facilities under construction and expected to be 90% complete by December, the Venues, Infrastructure and Equipment Committee, have identified and located 16 schools, as substitutes to the following venues.
The boxing ring is an Olympic sized ring, which can also be used for sports other than boxing such as Taekwondo, Karate and kick boxing.
Mr. Tkatchenko reiterates the significance in the K1.1 billion, that has been invested into the infrastructure for sports alone, and the lasting legacy it will have on the future of sports in Papua New Guinea.
Port Moresby was the first and certainly not the last city to receive boxing rings.
Mr. Tkatchenko alongside his team will be travelling to Goroko and Alotau in the coming months, to present and donate many more boxing rings and sporting equipment, as part of the government’s sports enhancement program.
