Letisha Pukaikia has travelled from New Zealand and will contest the open 100m and 200m along with Nancy Malamut (ENB) and Leonie Beu (Morobe) – 200m. Toea Wisil’s younger sister Christina will represent Jiwaka in the sprints. Fast times are expected in the 100m event with the track very dry and fast after a long spell of dry weather.

A number of 2017 Oceania Championship Gold medallist will be competing including Ephraim Lerkin Peniel Richard, Raylyne Kanam and Simbai Kaspar. Lerkin took a well earned break after the World Championships in London and will run the 800m this weekend instead of his usual 400m and 400m hurdles.
