Vodafone chief marketing officer, Rajnesh Prasad said, as gold sponsors they are glad to sponsor the Team Fiji contingent.

“Training gears are essential tools for the team as part of their training preparation to the Olympics,” he said.

Team Fiji has submitted recommendations to the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) for two male athletes and one female to represent Fiji to the Olympics.
