Athletics Technical Official Philip Kamane was at the Gold Coast last week attending a 5 Day Technical Officials Lecturer’s course run by the Oceania Office of the IAAF Development Department. Kamane has been a regular official at National and Regional Championship events since retiring from competitive athletics almost 20 years ago and was one of the key technical officials at the Pacific Games last year. He recently graduated from the University of Goroka with a Diploma in Teaching Physical Education. Kamane is a Development Officer at the National Sports Institure in Goroka and is one of twelve participants from Oceania attending the Course which is being conducted by International Technical Official Trevor Spittle from New Zealand. He becomes only the third Papua New Guinean to pass this course after Sophia Marai and Lazarus Bureng. Congratulations to Philip for successfully completing what is not an easy course.
