Participants hail meet


LOCAL and international participants have expressed satisfaction in what they have learnt at the third National Sports Conference (NSC) in Port Moresby last week.
Conference chairperson Janet Gimot yesterday said the three-day conference outlined some of the hardships the provinces faced, and how they could tackle them in future.
The most outstanding and eye-catching presentation at the conference was by Bougainville Sports Authority (BSA).
Most of the provincial participants want to use BSA sports’ presentation for future presentations at the workshop.
“I am sure a lot of participants have learnt a lot and want to grasp what they can use in their province, while sports federations can adopt that in their respective sports,” Gimot said.
Another presentation was to relook at the National Sports Institute as a high altitude training centre in future.
This centre can also attract overseas teams to come and train in the country.
The presentation on NSI was a general information and also looked at recommendations to improve it as a high performance centre.
Another informative presentation was done by Runeway Sports Super Centres in Gold Coast, Australia.
Runeway has an understanding with the PNG Olympic Committee, enabling many PNG teams to train with the organisation while preparing for international tournaments.
Gimot said the conference also had teachers presenting physical education information and how it can help sports in the country.
Gimot thanked the major sponsor, the PNG Sports Foundation, PNG Olympic Committee plus other minor sponsors such as Avis, University of Goroka, Coca Cola and Theodist for supporting the three-day conference.
