“This sport in our blood in our family and its started from our mom and my aunties. I want to represent Fiji and get gold medals like her. If there’s a Youth Olympics in the next five years I’ll try my best to go.”

19-year-old Timothy Vakuruivalu who is the eldest says his mom was his driving force to where he is now.

“She’s been traveling with me a lot and she’s been speaking to me and try and motivate me to keep carrying on with the sport and she’s been helping me a lot.”

 Vakuruivalu has represented Fiji in the Oceania Championship and the Asian Indoor Games in Turkmenistan in the 96kg last year.
