Vision, Mission For Rio

 

Team Fiji has started its 2016 Rio Olympics preparation with management workshop conducted in Suva.

The workshop was facilitated by Oceania Sports Educator Programme (OSEP) Educator Talemo Waqa.

Team Fiji Chef de Mission Cathy Wong said the purpose of the workshop last Saturday was to educate various sporting federations on proper planning for the games.

“This is the first time ever that we are actually doing a workshop of this nature where the teams who have already qualified for Rio are actually planning or laying down the pathway for the rest of the teams,” Wong said.

“This is the start of our build-up to Rio for Team Fiji since we are sending a biggest contingent ever to an Olympic event, so definitely we need to plan well.

“This is where the whole team puts together their vision and mission.

“Team Fiji will do a major corporate sponsorship drive, the national federations will be doing their own fundraising but we will be doing it collectively as Team Fiji.”

Waqa said they wanted the participants of various sporting federations to understand the importance of being part of Team Fiji.

“We want to give them the overview of what Team Fiji is all about.

“Some of them are first-timers, we have to make sure we are communicating as a team, working as a team, leading the team on proper leadership not on conservative norms.

“They will need to understand, there is a lot of challenges, we want to capture what they already know so they can have a team culture that will achieve the objective they will set up,” Waqa said.

The Vodafone Fijian 7s, Telecom Fijiana 7s rugby teams and the Vodafone Fijian U23 football team and shooter Glen Kable have all qualified for the Rio Olympics.
