Fijian Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) have invited nominations for inductees into the Fiji Sports Hall of Fame and nominations for the Fiji Olympic Order.

The event will be held in Nadi on March 31.

Fiji Sports Hall of Fame convenor Makarita Lenoa said this was a great opportunity for sportspersons to be recognised.

“This is an opportunity to nominate and recognise athletes and administrators who have achieved sporting excellence at the highest level and contributed to the development of sport in Fiji,”Lenoa said.

“The decision of the judging panel will be final and no debate or correspondence will be entered into.

“As the event was not held last year any nominations submitted in 2016 plus any unsuccessful nominations from previous years must be resubmitted.”

Meanwhile, former region sprint queen Vaciseva Tavaga was inducted to Fiji Sports Hall of Fame in 2015. Tavaga was one of Fiji’s and the South Pacific’s most outstanding women athletes’ with her sporting achievements spanning more than 13 years.

From 1991 to 1995 Vaciseva was the region’s sprint queen, winning gold at every regional athletics meet including both Pacific and Oceania  competitions in the 100m and 200m events.

Her personal best time for the 100m is 11.6s and in the 200m 24.07s.
