The British High Commissioner Roderick Drummond hosted Team Fiji to the 2014 Commonwealth Games to a morning tea in Suva yesterday.
Drummond reminded the athletes about the event which will be held from July 23 to August 3 in Glasgow.
“It’s great to have Fijians back in the Commonwealth family,”Drummond said.
“I’m sure you and your supporters will make a lot of noise in Glasgow.
“Last year during the 2013 Rugby League World Cup, there were towns that turned to be the home venue for Fiji. You are going to get the crowds on your side and your noisy supporters.
“We are pleased to host this event in honour of Team Fiji going to Glasgow.
“We were delighted when the news came through that Fiji will be part of the 2014 Games and we hope that preparations have been going well.”
The High Commissioner also reminded the athletes to fly the flag of Fiji high and wished them well.
“Enjoy, relish your time on the big stage, so many people will be watching you around the world. Do your country proud.”
Athletics Fiji’s lone female athlete, Younis Bese said she would do her best in the Games and aimed to improve her time.
“The challenge is out there, especially competing with sprinters from around the Commonwealth, but I will try to set a new PB,” Bese said.
Her personal best in the 100 metres is 12.01 seconds and 24.72secs in the 200m.
