31 May 2022 — Three Palau Track and Field athletes and their coach have been invited to attend the Oceania Area Athletics Championship in Mackay, Queensland, Australia from 7 – 11 June 2022.
Coach Peoria Koshiba and athletes Emmanuel Adaba, Sydney Francisco and TJ Kloulubak Singichi will make up the team traveling to Australia. In funding Team Palau’s travel insurance and visa application fees, the Australian Embassy hopes this assistance alleviates some of the team’s expenses so that they can concentrate on performing at their best.

The upcoming competition is an important fixture for Oceania athletes and serves as a qualifying and preparation competition for the World Athletics Championships, Pacific Mini Games and the World U20 Championships. Australia’s assistance is provided through the PacificAusSport program which supports pathways for emerging Pacific Athletes to benefit from high performance coaching, training and in-country competitions.
The Australian Embassy wishes Team Palau great success in Mackay! For more information, please contact the Australian Embassy, Palau on 488-4628 or koror.embassy@dfat.gov.au.
