Fiji 7s coach Gareth Baber says what they achieved at the Tokyo Olympic Games last night was for the country as we battle the COVID-19 pandemic.
Baber says the health crisis was part of the foundation for them in the last three days.
The team will leave for Fiji today while Baber will head to Europe to meet his family after seven months.
LATE-NIGHT CHIT CHAT!!!
Despite a hectic day, Coach Gareth Baber still had time to thank everyone for their support.
