Journalist notes[edit]

I apologize for these short articles. I was told today that Africa actually receives much more substantial coverage than Oceania and it would be great to see more coverage for Oceania. I am also trying to set up interviews with Oceania based competitors, so it would be nice to have an article published about them to justify them giving me the time. --LauraHale (talk) 09:33, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

The schedule has been sent to either scope or dropbox for the article about Papua New Guinea. I am generalising as to the date because he is competing in several events. --LauraHale (talk) 09:33, 28 August 2012 (UTC)


I interviewed Paul Bird this morning who is the president of the Oceania Paralympics Committee. He said that Marcel flew from Santo to the capital Port Vila, got a flight from there to Brisbane, then a flight to Singapore before getting a flight to London to attend the Games. --LauraHale (talk) 09:33, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Done If someone asked for news related to Singapore, doesn't seem they'd want this article in the result. --Pi zero (talk) 13:37, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
