FSM measles outbreak under control ahead of Micronesian Games

Updated 15 July 2014, 12:44 AEST

It's billed as the biggest sporting event in the North Pacific - and the 2014 Micronesian Games are set to be the largest ever.

Pohnpei is getting ready to host the 10-day event - but it does so as it attempts to deal with a measles outbreak.

Hundreds of athletes are due to start arriving in the Pohnpei within days, ahead of the Games opening ceremony on July the 20th.

Robert Spegal is the CEO of the Games Organising Committee and he's confident they have taken appropriate action to prevent the outbreak from affecting the event.
