Boost For Gold Medal Winners

Athletes will be getting more for winning medals at the 2015 Coca-Cola Games next week

This was after Damodar City Events has come aboard to support the annual prestigious athletic event.

Coca-Cola Amatil Fiji marketing manager Lawrence Tikaram revealed $4000 was going towards rewarding the athletes.

“As we build up for the Coke Games we are focusing more on the athletes and their preparations and looking at ways of rewarding them.” he said.

Damodar City Events and food court tenants will provide each gold medal winner with a food voucher, a movie pass to watch the Avengers and a combo snack pack.

“When you add this up for the 165 medals, it comes to under $4000,” Tikaram said.

“Damodar City Events will also present $1000 to Fiji Secondary Schools Amateur Athletics Association.”

FSSAAA secretary Vuli Waqa said more companies could take the Games to new heights.

“We are grateful to Damodar and food court tenants at Damodar City for giving us this opportunity. I think this is the first of its kind in Fiji,” Waqa said.

The 2015 Coca-Cola Games will be on April 24-25 at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.
