Fijian 7s  coach, Ben Ryan paid tribute to the late Beth Coalter after the Olypic gold medal win.

He tweeted that the late Coalter made today possible.

 

 

Coalter was the World Rugby Sevens Operations Manager at the time of her death. She passed away in October last year following a short illness.

A statement released by World Rugby described Coalter as a beacon of warmth and positivity.

“Beth’s passion and professionalism during 10 years with the international federation was a major driving force behind rugby sevens successful campaign for Olympic Games inclusion and the growth and ongoing success of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series,” the statment said.

Meanwhile, August 22 has been declared a public holiday to celebrate this historic win. The team arrive home on Sunday, August 21.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama also tweeted a congratulatory message to Ben and the boys.

Fiji Rugby 7s team trainer, Naca Cawanibuka shared some light about the back-end work that they do.
