Commonwealth Games hopefuls step up training

With the support of the Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee, Papua New Guinea Swimming Inc organised for the two swimmers, both 17, to train in Port Moresby for the week leading up to a competition in Australia.

PNGSI Secretary, Carly Pini, said the two swimmers departed for Brisbane on Wednesday this week. They flew to Melbourne on Thursday and were to be joined by experienced PNG swimmer Ashley Seeto.

They are currently competing at the 2018 Victorian Open Championships being held at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC) from January 12-14.
