Team Solomon holds final team bonding ahead of Pacific Games
Local athletes who will represent the country in the upcoming Pacific Games took part in their final team bonding session over the weekend in Honiara.
This is a very important program for the athletes and the rest of the Solomon Islands contingents as they prepare to represent the country in the Pacific’s biggest sporting event.
Chef de mission Fay Ghemu said the sessions are vital to boost the team’s morale and to elevate motivation amongst athletes.
She said through the team bonding sessions athletes will be able to form friendly relationships amongst each other as well as increase team spirit among the team.
“You will be representing your families, your communities, your provinces and most importantly our country, this nation Solomon Islands.”
“The people of this nation are looking up to you with pride, she said, go and participate and wave the Solomon Islands flag higher,” she said.
As part of the program over the weekend, the athletes were also given the opportunity to listen to former National Tennis Star and the country’s first ever Tennis athlete to play at Wimbledon Michael Leong as he shared some of his experiences and made a presentation as a way to inspire, encourage and motivate the athletes.
Meanwhile, Team Solomon is expected to go to camp in the coming weeks ahead of the Pacific Games.
Team Solomon is one team that shares one dream under one flag in a united Solomon Islands.
