This year’s Coca-Cola Games is a symbolic  representation of our overcoming the hurdles of the recent devastation by Cyclone Winston.

Coca-Cola Amatil Fiji marketing manager Lawrence Tikaram made the statement at the lighting of the Games torch on Tuesday.

He said the official flames gave hope to every Fijian.

“The official flame is believed to carry every Fijian’s optimism of an always better tomorrow and an optimistic horizon for our participating athletes, who have endured and given so much in preparing for this year’s Coca-Cola Games.”

Tikaram said this year’s Games would be an inspirational story and a masterpiece of what we can do together as a nation after recent devastations.

“A lot of things have been said about the Coca-Cola games and the hurdles that we have overcome but through our resolve with students and teachers, this year will be a special one and will be historic one because we have come together after a very devastating effect of cyclone Winston,” he said.

Tikaram commended all participating athletes for the hard work and preparation for the annual event despite the challenges they had to overcome over the past few months.

He said: “We must ask our athletes to take a humble bow as they are the true champions of this year’s Coca-Cola games. They are the ones who have shown resolve and have shown that as Fijians we can overcome above all adversity and perform to the best of our abilities.” The Coke games will be held on April 28-30.
