Assistant Minister for Youth and Sports Iliesa Delana encouraged Fijians to organise and participate in sporting activities.

He was the chief guest during the National Sports Day holiday in Labasa yesterday.

“Its main purpose is to spread the message of combating non-communicable diseases and to celebrate the contribution of sports to the nation and community,” Delana said.

“I encourage Fijians to participate as a community by organising sporting activities.

“Professional sportsmen and women who ply their trade overseas have contributed positively towards the country through remittances paid to the Government.

“We also know full well what sports can do for you individually and as a nation which is why we want you to join in during the National Sports Day.”

Delana said the economic and health benefits of sports participation being influential in curbing associated health bills, Fijians needed to actively engage themselves in sporting activities.
