The Namosi man adds they’re here to represent not only their school but the people of Lakeba.


“There are eight villages in Lakeba. We see a lot of potential but the only thing that is lacking is the skills, that is the main challenge that we are facing and also the grounds.”

The Games starts on Thursday until Saturday at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva.

Fans can start purchasing grandstand tickets at the Athletics Fiji head office along McGregor Road for $45 for the three days.

Spectators and supporters can purchase embankment tickets for $12 and ground for $10.

Embankment and ground tickets will be sold at the gates.
