Special Olympic Fiji received a timely sponsorship from Goodman Fielder (Fiji) Limited yesterday.

The official handover was done at the Suva Special School where the athletes received their official uniforms (canvas, tracksuits, Tee-shirts, tights, vest and wear bags).

Coach Nischal Nishal Karan said the sponsorship was a boost to the six athletes that will be representing the country at the Los Angeles tournament.

“The sponsorship adds to the delight these athletes have for this tour,” Karan said.

He said it was not easy for him to train the athletes but has confidence the side will dominate in some of their events.

“We had gone through some challenges while preparing but now they are medical fit and ready.

“We are so thankful to Goodman Fielder for this sponsorship and we look forward to partnering with them in future.”

The athletes will leave for Los Angeles next Tuesday before the 2015 Special Olympics World Games officially opens on July 25.
