It was a pleasant surprise for Shirish Chand when he found out that he is one of the nominees for the 2016 Fiji Sports Awards.

Chand, 40, was nominated by Asia Pacific Taekwondo for the administrator category.

The other nominees are Simione Naiduki (Fiji Rugby), Timoci Naleba (Fiji National Rugby League), Anthony Ho (Table Tennis), Jone Baleilomaloma (Volleyball) and Sikeli Tuinamuana (Weightlifting).

“It’s an awesome moment for me. It feels great to be nominated and I’m excited as I was not expecting this at all,”Chand said.

“I was surprised when I saw my name on the newspaper before receiving an e-mail. It’s a great feeling to be recognised for our hard work.

“My whole family was surprised and wished me all the best.”

Chand was involved with Fiji Taekwondo for three years and started with Asia Pacific Taekwondo last year as an administrator.

“I’m looking forward to  the event.”
