West New Britain Provincial Championships

Successful WNB champs: APNG

With little competition having been held around the country this year, Athletics PNG took the opportunity to fly in a number of targeted national squad athletes for the event to assist their preparations for the National Championships, which will be held next month.

The highlight of the weekend was a sensational 200m time of 21.15 seconds by Leroy Kamau, eclipsing the time set at the 2015 Pacific Games by his coach Nelson Stone, which was at that time the fastest 200m ever recorded by a PNG athlete on home soil.

WNB athletics champs set to go

The event kicks off on Friday, November 13th, at the Sasindran Muthuvel Stadium.

Despite the disruption to training this year caused by COVID-19 restrictions, the athletics programme in the province, led by Coach Wilson Malana, has been very active with a number of weekly competitions having already been held.
