Wagga is set to play host to the Aboriginal Mini Olympics on Thursday.

The event will attract around 250 competitors from across NSW to the Kyeamba Smith Hall.

“We are extremely proud to be hosting the Mini Olympics in Wagga,” MLHD Aboriginal Health Unit Chronic Care Coordinator Marylouise Simpson said.

“We have competitors travelling from as far as Sydney, Queanbeyan and Bega.”

Entrants will compete in eight events including shoot for goal, foxtail, bowling, discus, bullseye, monster quoit , hurdle toss and javelin.

The Mini Olympics will be held at Kyeamba Smith Hall from 9am to 3pm followed by a celebratory dinner.

Last year the event was held in Albury.
