Team PNG aims to make impact: Chef de Mission

Team PNG’s 2019 Chef de Mission says their aim is to finish at the number one spot.

Athletes are at the heart of the Olympic movement, hence the PNG Olympic Committee aims to ensure that they perform at their best.

Chef de Mission for Team PNG to Samoa 2019, Emma Waiwai, stressed that everything they do is for PNG’s athletes.

“Because on the day, we can shout and scream and do everything but it’s you that’s going to win the medal for us,” Waiwai told members of Team PNG during a media blitz on Friday.

Team PNG had an excellent Games

Speaking at the official welcome for Team PNG last night at the Gold Club, Wardley thanked the athletes and officials for giving it their best over the two weeks on the world stage.

She said PNG, like other competing nations and territories, had their fair share of achievements and disappointments.

“We had some fantastic wins, some great personal achievements with national records, seasonal bests and personal bests.

“We also suffered our share of disappointments and losses.

Team PNG set for competition

Chef de Mission, Emma Waiwai, said Team PNG is in Vanuatu to compete and they are not leaving without achieving their goals.

“We are ready and are looking forward to taking back the spoils to PNG,” she said.

The team is expecting strong challenge from traditional rivals New Caledonia, Fiji and hosts Vanuatu.

“Everyone is here to give their best and we will ensure that they are able to do that to the best of their ability.

“At the end of competition we want to send everyone back satisfied that they gave their best,” said Waiwai.
