A TEAM from Papua New Guinea attended the 2014 Coca-Cola Games at the ANZ Stadium in Suva last weekend.

The team, which had members from Athletics PNG and its education ministry, were in the country to observe the games.

Athletics PNG president Tony Green said they were planning to start a version of the Fiji Finals back in their country.

"We heard a lot about the Coca-Cola Games over the years and certainly we would like to start that in PNG.

"We wouldn't try to do it on a national basis from the start because it's a big task in a country as diverse as PNG.

"We looking at perhaps starting at a couple of regions first and take it from there."

Green said hosting national secondary schools athletics meet in PNG would help them identify talents at an early age.
