Vodafone Fiji chief executive officer, Pradeep Lal has congratulated the Vodafone Fijian 7s team for a great win in Hong Kong on Sunday night.

“It had everything- heart stopping one moment and sheer brilliance the next,” he said.

“The nation needed a win and the team delivered it in style.  We are proud to be the major sponsor of the team.”

Lal said the Hong Kong tournament is regarded as the ultimate in the abbreviated code of the sport.

“For Fijians, Happy Valley is regarded as their home turf and there is always a huge expectation from Fijian fans for a win in Hong Kong. For the team to absorb all the pressure and deliver victory shows the mental toughness of the team and augurs well as they go into the final leg of the World Sevens Series and the Olympics in August.”

Lal pointed out the whole nation has gotten behind the team as people have temporarily forgotten their woes.

“This win brought back smiles across the country and hopefully to those affected by the recent cyclones and floods.

“It has given hope and inspiration to the people to rise through adversity.

“Congratulations and a big vinaka vakalevu to the Vodafone Fijian 7s team, coach and management for delivering an exhilarating win. You all have done Fiji proud.”

Lal added that they are confident  the team would deliver yet another winning performance in Singapore this weekend.

This is to put them in a strong position to defend the Series title.
