Pasifika Athletes

New show to Champion the Pacific athlete

RNZ Pacific's new show Champions of the Pacific aims to showcase more than just their wins and losses.

Co-hosts Talei Anderson and Koro Vaka'uta along with sports producer and journalist Vinnie Wylie will bring a weekly feature from today both on RNZ National and across the region on short-wave and on major podcast platforms.

The show aims to step away from the field to look at what makes the Pasifika athlete tick, including in-depth interviews with athletes and members of the Pacific sports community and talanoa on the hot issues of the moment.
