Prima Smallgoods has once again come to the assistance of Athletics PNG by supporting groups of National Squad athletes training in PNG with a fortnightly donation of food products. Athletics PNG Secretary Philip Rehder said that through a partnership arrangement with the National Sports Institute, there were currently eight national squad athletes training in Goroka and APNG has taken on the responsibility of feeding the athletes. A smaller group is based in Lae said Rehder who thanked Prima through its National Sales and Marketing Manager Kola Geri for the company’s support. Our domestic scholarship programme has worked well for us over the years added Rehder and with the Pacific Games in Samoa only a little over 15 months away it is very important that we keep our athletes focussed. Many of the athletes are attending school full time, including Abel Siune, Simbai Kaspar, Jenny Albert and Leonie Beu who are attending Goroka Grammar School. Coach Anton Lui is supervising the athletes under the direction of APNG Development Officer Dior Lowry.
