The Fijian Government will continue to support the development of athletes, especially the budding and aspiring ones.
Speaking at the first ever Fiji Young Athletes Forum in Suva today, Minister for Youth and Sports, Laisenia Tuitubou has challenged the young athletes to strive for excellence.
“Our recent outings in Pacific Mini games and other international events have been very successful. Our athletes and teams have been very competitive across all sports. A number of athletes have also won medals for the country,” Tuitubou said.
Tuitubou says the government will provide an unwavering support to harness sports development in Fiji.
“Congratulations to all of you who have been selected to represent the country. You are the great ambassadors for the country,” Tuitubou said.
