Justification Committee

Final endorsement process for Team PNG

The Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee Justification Committee will be in charge of this.

The National Federations of the 28 sports on the Samoa 2019 Pacific Games program have been reminded by the PNG Olympic Committee of the requirements that need to be submitted by February 27th.

Secretary General of the Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee, Auvita Rapilla, said the justification process is very important and sports must meet all the requirements if they want their athletes to be considered for the Games.

8 sporting codes dropped from Team PNG

Boxing, football (soccer), judo, lawn bowls, powerlifting, rugby 9s, taekwondo and va’a (outrigger canoeing) were not endorsed by the Justification Committee (JC) due to the failure to meet the May 18th deadline.

The JC is the body responsible for endorsing sports – and their athletes and officials – to be a part of Team PNG for respective Games.
