The support of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) has been overwhelming for Vodafone Fijian 7s rep, Isake ‘Ice’ Katonibau.

“I want to thank the Fiji Military Forces,” he said during the Infantry Day celebrations at the RFMF Camp in Nabua yesterday.

“Being in the Fiji Military Forces, anything to do with national duty is part of my job and for them to celebrate my contribution to the Fijian team, I take this opportunity to thank them,” he said.

“I want to acknowledge the RFMF Commander Brigadier-General Mosese Tikoitoga, Land Force Commander Colonel Sitiveni Qiliho.”

Being part of the 2014/2015 Sevens World Series champion team, Katonibau strongly believes the road to the Rio Olympics will not be easy because each spot is not guaranteed.

“For the selection for Rio, my spot is not guaranteed and that’s a big challenge for me to work hard on and I will try my best to get selected.”

Senior military officers thanked Katonibau yesterday for his contribution to the 2014/2015 Sevens World Series.
