The Pacific Games are an international sports competition that brings together the 22 States and Territories of the Pacific and they are supervised by the Council of Pacific Games.
The primary objective of these Pacific Games is to create links of friendship and brotherhood among the countries of the Pacific, through sports exchanges, without any distinction of race, religion or politics.
The first Pacific Games were organized in 1963, in Fiji. Every 4 years, the Games are organized in a member country or territory of the Council of Pacific Games.
This year there are eight sports; sailing, the Va’a, Beach volleyball, Volleyball, Taekwondo, athletics and weightlifting.
