Vakatawa: I Made The Right Decision

Fijian-born centre cum winger Virimi Vakatawa is regarded as a super star in France when it comes to sevens rugby.

And the Naitasiri native is now relishing the chance to go for gold at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in August.

‘I’m very proud and it’s something that will make a mark on my life,” the former Nasinu Secondary School student told the Daily Mail.

“When I came to France in 2010 I wasn’t expecting that one day I will be able to take part in the Olympics. And I know now that I’ve made the right choice to play for France. It will be very important for me to defend this shirt and I’m going to work hard to reach my level best.”

Next week, Vakatawa is going to be France kingpin as they play in their own Paris tournament of the 2015/16 World Sevens Series. They are in Pool D with Argentina, USA and Canada.
