The Vanuatu National Games were held in Luganville from 12th – 14th December 2016.
A impressive number of 246 athletes competed in the competitions which will be one of the important preparation events leading up to the Pacific Mini Games.
In preparation for the games Athletics Vanuatu is planning an extensive High Performance training program, which will include 40 athletes, 8 coaches and 3 technical officials. This also includes overseas competitions, such as the Australian National Championships, the Oceania Championships and the IAAF World Championships.
As part of the preparation program there is also a budget for funding support for local athletics clubs.
We are looking forward to great results and achievements for Athletics Vanuatu in 2017!
