Results Review

The 2003 Suva South Pacific Games among other things was hailed for its innovative use of technology in results. This Web Site is derived from this digitized computerized result system from the 2003 SPG. This interactive result system provided real time updates on websites through the centralized results center for official and media purposes. This data will remain here online as a permanent record of the Games and as a marker for this momentous occasion when the South Pacific Games joined the Computer Age.

Much of the content of this Web Site can be found in a handy hard copy reference of records of results from the 2003 SPG. A bound hard copy print for the various NOC's in the region and as a central reference sports for all interested parties in years to come. One of the reasons for the published review was to bring uniformity to the results in a format that provided ready answers to questions on results. It is aimed at providing a complement to the already existing records of the games that has been archived and presented on the OceaniaSport portal.

The system developed for the 2003 South Pacific Games has now been formally adopted by the South Pacific Games Council as the Official Games Management System, building from one Games to the next in both content and quality. The system essentially operated independent Web Sites for each sport, all running off a database and a special software package called Sportzware to generate Draws and keep track of results and statisitics, while uploading regularly to the web sites.

I am proud to commend this web network of results for the 2003 SPG, to you and look forward to seeing the Region as a whole, embrace this new technology as we move forward into the 21st Century.
