Tahiti sporting federations

Tahiti sporting federations still plan to attend Mini Games

The withdrawal was announced by the director of French Polynesia's youth and sport service Anthony Pheu at the weekend and follows a disagreement over who should represent Tahiti's boxers.

Mr Nena's Tahiti Boxing Association is recognised by the international boxing federation while the government-backed federation is not.

He said that gives them the right to attend the Mini Games in Vanuatu and he's confident they won't be the only ones.
