Family and relatives of Team Fiji men’s rugby sevens rep Vatemo Ravouvou gathered to celebrate his birthday at Saunaka Village yesterday.

Mum Asinate Ravouvou celebrated her son’s 26th birthday by hosting a family lunch.

“This lunch was planned by his aunties and his birthday is celebrated by everyone close to us in Fiji and abroad,”Asinate said.

“This year we celebrate his birthday by just having lunch, no birthday cake and remembering him and Team Fiji with positive thoughts.

“In the morning I posted on his Facebook page to wish him Happy Birthday. And he called me back a few minutes later saying that his birthday is on Monday due to the time difference.

“I told him we are already celebrating it in Fiji.”

Vatemo is the eldest of two siblings and continues his family legacy in Rugby.

“Just like any mother I am proud of his achievement and I would just like to wish him and the boys all the best in Rio. I always remember Vatemo and the team in my prayers.”
