Solomons govt urged to copy PNG on sport facilities

The chef in mission Ronald Talasasa Jr said their athletes can match many of those athletes from other Pacific nations if they had better sporting facilities, like Papua New Guinea.

"We can compete well just like our friends from other countries in the region, only if we have better facilities. Thank you Papua New Guinea for having some of the best facilities," he said during the Solomon Islands 37th Independence Anniversary at Gordons Secondary School in Port Moresby on Sunday.

The Solomon Islands team boss got a standing ovation from the crowd when he said that.
