The 1978 Commonwealth Games: How a Boxer Brought a New Country Together

Zurenuoc, Manasupe; Herbert, Felicity

Description

Papua New Guinea (PNG) is a diverse country of over 800 different languages spread over remote and diverse terrain. Bringing a country like this together was always going to be challenging. This In Brief describes how the many differences were put aside when a young boxer from Tsio Island represented PNG, just after its independence, at the Montreal Commonwealth Games.
