Parkop disappointed with medal awards

NCD Governor Powes Parkop has expressed disappointment over awarding of two additional gold medals to Team East New Britain who he claimed had breached the games rules to come out winners.

Locked on 35 gold medals apiece going into the kickboxing competition on Friday, NCD picked up four gold to ENB’s two gold to finish with 39 gold medals, two ahead of the home team and win back-to-back titles.

However, it is believed the director of the National Sport Institute and founder of the PNG Games concept Edris Kumbruwah, had awarded two more gold medals to ENB as their finals opponents from the Autonomous Region of Bougainville (AROB) had withdrawn from the competition on the final day.

The reason for their withdrawal is not known.
