Harvi Yee and her 12- year- old daughter, Sally Yee, have already set their aims of representing Fiji at the 2015 Pacific Games in what they considered a family sport; table tennis.
This target has been boosted with the recent achievement of Sally at the Oceania Championship in New Caledonia where she won a gold medal, a silver and two bronze medals.
The Vishnu Deo Memorial Primary School student is the first from her family to win table tennis medals in international competitions and this achievement alone has set a high standard for all their family members to set their own targets in table tennis.
“This is a proud achievement for our family especially with our own 12- year- old daughter doing well in the world stage,” her mother Harvi said.
“Sally started playing table tennis three years ago after being inspired by us her parents.
“She is a very talented player who loves to listen to every advice we give her and we believe she will achieve great in the international arena in the near future.”
Harvi said her daughter’s achievements have inspired her to be the second from her family to join her daughter for the 2015 SPG.
“I guess it will be more like a mother and daughter competition now.
“We have both set our aims and preparations for 2015 and Sally has also set her dreams to be a cadet and later represent Fiji in the 2016 Olympic Games.
“Her younger sister Grace is only eight years and she is also playing,” Yee added.
The family originally from Puakonikai, Rabi have been involved in the sport for more than some years now and while they are loving every moment of it they have also aimed to make their nation Fiji proud in table tennis in the near future.
