While Team PNG are well on the way for the Pacific Games, the Pacific as a whole is gearing up for what will be the best games ever hosted in our region.
With a forceful team of 50 working tirelessly to ensure a bigger and better Pacific Games, a total of 22 countries will be aiming for gold in all the varied 28 sports.
Team PNG on board with a strong contingent of 600 athletes, are working towards repeating the victorious year of 1991, in which the games were held and dominated by Papua New Guinea.
While the concern surrounding venues remains at the tip our tongues, Peter Stewart, CEO of 2015 Pacific Games, has every confidence in a smooth and successful rollout of the event.
Pacific Games defending champions, New Caledonia remain Papua New Guinea’s strongest threat.
Looking back to the most recent games in 2011, held in Noumea in New Caledonia, the French colonized nation, Team New Caledonia, was 167 medals well ahead of Papua New Guinea, placing them at 3rd place, just 23 points behind Tahiti.
With the guidance of PNG’s shining stars in the name of sports, PNG as a nation, should not expect anything less than first place.
Three-time Olympic swimmer Ryan Pini has never settled for less than a medal, always achieving above bronze.
PNG’s superwoman Toea Wisil will be sure to assist in ensuring Team PNG reaches the finish line with flying colors.
