Film - Welcome to PNOC

This film was made by young reporters in Palau. This short film provides a great insight into the purpose and impact of PNOC - Palau National Olympic Committee.

Within this film we hear from:

Frank Koyota - President of PNOC
Peoria Koshiba - Vice President of Palau Track and Field / PNOC Athletics Development officer.
Rubie Joy Gabriel - Palauan 100m Olympian
John Tarkong Jr - President Palau Wrestling Federation
Alonz Moses - Team Palau Chef de Mission

Within this film we see archive footage from previous sports events and get a taste for the variety of activities taking place within PNOC.

The young reporters are tasked with the mission of telling the stories of Palauan athletes, by producing films, blogs and updates for Palauans and the rest of the world to learn about.

*A version of this films with English subtitles is currently in production, coming soon*

This film was produced by the newly trained reporters of The Reporters' Academy Palau, Chaz, Charley, Klang, Ruby, Sean and Isabel - who make an appearance throughout the film.
