Tokelau National Games for this year is cancelled as a result of the Chikungunya virus epidemic in the islands.

“The executive board members decision to cancel the games due to the epidemic was not a difficult one. The health of our people and the containment of the epidemic were the two driving factors of the board’s decision”, Sports Coordinator, Susan Perez says.

“A state of emergency was declared on the island where the games were to be hosted, so it was only fitting that that it needed to be cancelled”, she added.
