Powerlifting SI has reached the agreement and requirement to finally sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with SINIS and the National Sports Council (NSC).

Powerlifting Solomon Islands President Joe Au Ramosaea said they have been anticipating taking the sport to the next level – and the MOU signing will pave a way forward in terms of their preparations for the 2023 Pacific Games.

“As the President, I’m very excited to finally sign the MOU today. It took a while to decide on our governance and meet the requirements, and now it’s a major achievement for us,” Ramosaea stated.

“We never had such opportunities available to our athletes and coaches before. Therefore, we want to thank the national government, SINIS staff and management and the NSC."

Powerlifting SI Coach Rocky Ramo and athlete Nigel Kwansau witnessed the signing along with High-Performance Manager Portfolio 1 (Combat/Weight Sports) Moses Aunama Jr.

The MOU is to outline all of the support services and programs, along with assistance in areas of the training facility and equipment access, coach and athlete scholarships and a range of capacity-building programs which have not been offered in the Solomon Islands before SINIS was established.
