10th Pacific Mini Games underway, thanks to late Joe Carlo

The 10th Pacific Mini Games is officially underway in Port Vila, Vanuatu after it was declared open by the Prime Minister Charlot Salwai Tabimasmas in front of a packed Korman Stadium Monday night.

Thanks to the foresight and vision of the late Joe Borman Carlo, former president of Vanuatu Sports Association and National Olympic Committee (VASANOC).

“Joe led the successful bid of this Games,” said Vidya Lakhan, president of the Pacific Games Council.

The late Joe Carlo was part of the 4th Pacific Mini Games held in Vila in 1993 and was chairman of the VAN2017 Games Organising Committee when he passed away last year.

“While we miss him deeply, the success of these games will be a testament to his sporting legacy.”
