With only weeks counting down to the Pacific Mini Games National Olympic Committee of Solomon Islands (NOCSI) contingent’s Chef de Mission, Lysa Wini has stressed that most sports federations have yet to submit requirements for further finalizations.
In a statement to RAW SPORTS, Ms Wini stated that her team is working towards meeting the deadlines as required by the Pacific Games Commission (PGC).
“Given the circumstances we are progressing well, the team is working hard to make sure we meet the deadlines as required by the Pacific Games Council.
“However, it is a difficult process because most of the Federations are not providing the required details and payments for us to be able to finalise the team and athlete contingent.
“ I feel for the athletes who have been selected and are excited by the Games but may not travel because their Federations are not meeting the Games requirements.
Team Solomon is expected to depart for the competition first week of December with the games set to begin on 4th December.
Meanwhile Federations have provided squad lists and a finalization of teams is expected by the end of this week.
