Team PNG Hero Poro Gahekave recently visited the PNG distance runners in training in Kerowagi, Simbu Province to pass on some valuable advice to the athletes. Gahekave who returned from the USA a year ago after Graduating from Lubbock Christian University with a degree in Business Administration has expressed her strong desire to pass on the benefits of her experience to the new generation of young athletes.
During her two days in Kerowagi she presented sessions on Goal Setting and Time Management , important topics that were covered during her one week induction as a Team PNG HERO in November last year.
The Team PNG HERO Programme is the PNG Olympic Committee’s athlete ambassador programme. Secretary General of the PNGOC Auvita Rapilla refers to the HERO Programme as their flagship programme and one which they are very proud of.
The term ‘HERO’ reflects PNGOC’s core values of Honesty, Excellence, Respect and Openness. The program provides an opportunity to develop athletes into leaders in their sport and communities.
