Life after "Te Runga" !
TRAINING STARTS AGAIN.
For the past two weeks, during the bi-ennial Inter-Island "Runga", training has been overshadowed by the needs of others, e.g. the Football competitions, the actual Athletics competition, and Boxing erecting its new ring and having a series of demonstrations. Now all that is in the past, we can re-focus on Samoa (OAA Championships) and get everyone moving again, e.g. tonight I had four good Discus throwers. We also had a sprint group and hurdlers working and thinking ahead !
Their next target is Trials 9 on Saturday week (Sept. 23rd.) This has almost become our selection trial because we may have to have our Samoa team selected by early October to be able to put names on airline seats at the cheapest price. The longer we wait, the fewer cheap seats will be available ! (A price difference of approx. AUD 1600 each !)
Tomorrow we send out our final invitations to the squad. Then meet on Sunday and ensure everyone knows what is happening !
