Colonia, YAP – The 2018 Micronesian Games officially kicked off Sunday evening with the Opening Ceremony declaring the Games’ official start. The event was held at the track & field venue, which is found in the center of all the sporting action.

Holding the flag for Team Guam was runner Genina Criss.

Team Guam rolled in with both the men and women’s va’a teams, the track and field athletes, a handful of men’s basketball players, all four beach volleyball players, the underwater fishing team and the wrestling squad. Some teams were missing from the event in both the indoor volleyball teams as well as the women’s basketball team.
