Papua New Guinea Sports Hall of Fame

More PNG sporting legends inducted to Hall of Fame

The four, who hail from different disciplines in the sport of athletics, were given the honour for their achievements and contribution to sports in Papua New Guinea.

They were dominant figures in Papua New Guinea and the Pacific region in the 1960s to the 1970s era and graced the sporting arena with their brilliance.

Kokinai and Ivaharia have passed on but were represented at the induction ceremony by family members who shared insights on their lives and career.
