Written By : General Editor. It’s depressing to see a sporting star admit assaulting his wife. Whether they like it or not, people like Iveri Lavo, the sevens squad member, are in the public eye. Young people in particular look up to them while their every misdemeanour is keenly reported in the media. It’s the price of fame.
However, assaulting one’s wife – or anybody else for that matter – is not a misdemeanour. As the magistrate pointed out to Lavo, it is a serious offence.
Young sportspeople such as Lavo need to be counseled on the need for appropriate behaviour at all times. For while they may not wish to be, they are role models for the young.
And they need to be aware of it.
