Fiji Airways has once again showed their support towards the prestigious Coca-Cola Games with the announcement of prizes which they will be awarding to athletes this year.

The announcement was made by Fiji Airways manager for sales Christopher Dalton during the Coca-Cola Games press conference at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

Dalton announced Fiji Airways and Fiji Link has allocated prizes for the best overall male and female winner, and for the winners of the males blue ribbon event and female’s blue ribbon event.

“They will each receive a prize each containing a return ticket flying Fiji Airways to either Australia or New Zealand. In addition to this, the best overall male and female sub-junior athlete will each receive a merchandise worth of FJ$300 for their hard work and dedication,” he said.

“It is the event that we know that every Fijian will be looking forward to and we know that everyone is behind their school both here in Fiji and abroad.

“And so just like Fiji Airways, the Coke Games links Fijians no matter where they are in the World.”

Meanwhile Fiji Secondary Schools general secretary, Vuli Waqa, says all is ready for the games today.

Though grand stand tickets have been sold out, the organising committee has agreed to sell the remaining embankment tickets from yesterday to avoid the rush.

“This is simply to avoid the rush because we know that there will be a queue during the Games because of the sale of the embankment tickets. Everything is now ready to kick off the 2016 Coca-Cola Games. We are starting off at four o’clock, there will be a couple of field events and the only track events for tomorrow are the hits for the 100 and the 400 finals for those two events are going to be run on Friday.”

He said: “Everything is in place the only thing left is for things to get ready for the competition.”
