Winners of the blue ribbon event (100metres), best male and female athletes will get more than just medals at the 2015 Coca-Cola Games.

They will get return tickets to fly locally and either Australia or New Zealand.

The deal was signed in Suva yesterday between Fiji Airways, Coca-Cola Amatil and Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Association.

The top four athletes will get a domestic flight across any local destination along the Fiji Airways domestic route. This will be provided by Fiji Link. Fiji Airways will provide return tickets to Australia and New Zealand.

Fiji Airways Manager Fiji Christopher Dalton said this was a perfect opportunity to get involved.

“We would like to see the growth and development in sports as we have sponsored a lot,” Dalton said.

“And now we are looking at the younger athletes of tomorrow.

“We are proud to reward those athletes who have put in the time and effort and get the extra reward.

“We’re all about giving back to the local community. We see the Coke Games as a national stopping event, everyone stops to listen in or watch the games and we would like to be a part of that.”

Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Association president Marika Uluinaceva said the input by Fiji Airways would benefit the students in a big way.

“Earlier on we said that we are ready to roll, I think now we are ready to fly, thank you very much for coming and helping us,” he said. “We know that the students, teachers and stakeholders will benefit a lot from this and this has taken the Coke Games to a new level and increase the competitiveness among the students.”

The 2015 Coca-Cola Games start today at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.
