Updates on the Pacific Mini Games
The Tahitian government has been accused of political interference by the Pacific Games Council today.
This comes after Tahiti announced boycotting the Mini games come December in Vanuatu.
The announcement was made by the Director of French Polynesia’s youth and sport service Anthony Pheu, following a disagreement over who should represent Tahiti’s boxers in Port Vila in December.
Tahiti currently has two National Boxing federations, once of which is recognized by the International Boxing Federation and the other, by the Tahiti government.
The Games Council for one stands firm on its decision that they will not get involved in local politics, and they will accept athletes if they comply with their requirements.
