Niuean Athletes Off to Vanuatu Mini Games
Vanuatu Mini Games 2017
Niue is being represented at the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu by three codes – Golf, Athletics and Rugby 7s. The demand for air travel from the island and to Port Vila was such that the golfers had to depart a little on the Tuesday flight with the bulk of the team departing on Friday.
For the first time in the mini games, we have a father and daughter combination at golf – Hagen and Haven Siosikefu.
In the preparation leading up to the games New Zealand-based Sevens players travelled to the island for a week of intensive training with Niue-based players.
The team is scheduled to meet New Caledonia in the opening match at Korman Stadium on Friday 8 December at 2:00pm Vanuatu time – 11am Thursday 7 Niue time.
The Opening Ceremony on Sunday evening Niue time is expected to be carried live by Sky Pacific.
