PNGOC Order of Merit Award

Sir John Awarded

He received the award yesterday during PNGOC’s team bonding in Port Moresby. 
Sir John has been instrumental in building the image and growth of what use to be Papua New Guinea Sports Federation & Olympic Committee (PNGFOC) since 1984 from humble beginnings as the first official staff member to what is now a high profile and a widely respected entity known as the PNGOC today.

Sir John was PNGOC Secretary-General from 1984 to 2010, a total of 26-years. In June 2012, he was elected President and currently serving his final term ending in June 2024.
