Vodafone Fijian 7s rep Seremaia Tuwai and Wellington Phoenix/national football striker Roy Krishna will attend the Fiji Link third birthday celebration in Labasa today.

Fiji Link general manager Athil Narayan welcomed the duo and invited guests at the Grand Eastern Hotel in Labasa last night.

“We are very proud to have Krishna and Tuwai with us,” Narayan said.

“I know there has been a buzz in Labasa about the two sports stars being here.

“Both Roy and Tuwai do Fiji proud every time they put on their respective jerseys for Fiji and in Roy’s case for his club, the Wellington Phoenix.

“They are Olympians and always lead by example.

“Krishna and Tuwai have etched their names in Fijian sporting history.

“But beyond what they do on the field, the biggest attributes lies in what they do off it.

“Both Krishna and Tuwai have a humility that is typically Fijian.

“They give back to their families, their communities and their country.

“This is why Fiji Airways and Fiji Link are proud to have them on board as our ambassadors.”

Tuwai and Krishna said they are both excited to be in their hometown.

“I always feel happy meeting my family, friends and fans,” Krishna said.

Tuwai is enjoying his break after the 2016-17 World Sevens Series.

“I am having two months break before I join  camp for Rugby World Cup Sevens and Commonwealth Games preparation,” Tuwai said.

“While I am in my hometown, I would like to make the best use of time available to meet rugby fans in the Friendly North.”
