Plan Well: Dr Mitchell

Dr Robin Mitchell stresses the need for athletes to prepare well for the 2015 Pacific Games and the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The Oceania National Olympic Committees president made the comment when he addressed chef de missions and administrations at the Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday.

Now that rugby sevens is included in the 2016 Rio Olympics, Dr Mitchell said there was more push for other sports in the region in terms of facilities and resources to prepare our athletes.

“One thing we have at the moment is more regional training centres where people can go and train with experts,” Dr Mitchell said.

“We’re now looking at the Youth Olympics committee training facilities in the United States in preparation for Rio.”

International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach arrives tomorrow.

“The main focus of President Bach’s visit is to update the region,” Dr Mitchell said.
