Pacific Games athletes to check out after completing events

Pacific Games organisers have sorted out ways to accommodate over three thousand athletes in the fourteen days of the competition.

Team Samoa Chef de Mission, Nynette Sass says athletes will check out from their place of accommodation after completing their events.

“The first wave of athletes checking in and it depends on the sports schedule for first week and second week. So those competing in the first week will come in and check in and do the competition and then check out and then next wave comes in.”

“So in that way we don’t get to overload the system too much,” she said.

Sass also confirmed that the Papua New Guinea team will arrive in Apia on Tuesday to test the facilities prior to the games.

Apart from the South Pacific Countries, teams from Wales, Australia, New Zealand to name a few, will also be competing at the meet to prepare for Tokyo 2020.
