The Minister for Youth and Sports Laisenia Tuitubou urges National Federations to start the ground work for 2019 Pacific Games in Tonga.

Tuitubou made the call during Team Fiji’s thanksgiving assembly at the Suva Civic Centre yesterday.

“The dust has settled in Port Moresby for the 2015 Pacific Games, we now turn our attention to Tonga in four years time,” he said.

“If we are to improve our outings as Team Fiji in 2019, work needs to start now.

“I call upon all of you to work together for the fulfillment of our continuous endeavour to be the Pacific’s leading sporting nation.”

He said Government would always provide assistance.

“We want you to rise and improve yourselves. We will never cease to provide support that is needed to ensure sporting excellence is accomplished.

“I emphasise the need to analyse our shortfalls and identify the areas that need immediate attention.”

Meanwhile, Team Fiji gold medalists received their payout from Bank South Pacific (BSP) yesterday.

The bank gave out more than $30,000 as part of their Banking on Gold initiative to Team Fiji  athletes who competed at the Pac ific Games in Papua New Guinea.
