PAPUA NEW GUINEA will be sending its largest Olympic team ever to the London Games next month.
Eight athletes will compete in five sports including athletics, swimming, taekwondo, judo and weightlifting.
Most of those selected are currently training overseas in preparation for the games.
The team's head of mission, Syd Yates, told Radio Australia that winning a medal would be a huge achievement for the team.
"We're looking at continued improvement and personal bests," he said.
"Look if we can get a medal it would be fantastic but I think we'll just have to wait and see."
