Tomasi Tiko has been selected as Team Fiji chef de mission for the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games on October 6-18 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Speaking to SUN sports yesterday, Tiko was delighted for the opportunity to be appointed to lead Team Fiji contingent for the second time.

“I was the chef de mission for team Fiji in the 2017 Youth Commonwealth Games in Bahamas  and I’ am obviously delighted again to be appointed as the chef de mission for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games,” Tiko said.

“I am still trying to catch up with some of the information that has been passed down to me with regards to this game.

“My expectation for the games will be to encourage the athletes to deliver their best especially in trying to meet their personal best and as well as win medals.”

“Also, at the same time our aim will be to go through a pathway whereby the youths are able to maximise on the opportunity to get exposed to the international level of competition.

“There is no confirmation yet on the number of athletes that will be participating in the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics but it is confirmed that there will be 8 sporting federations are competing to get the qualification timing for the games.”
