Fiji Sun sports reporter Grace Narayan will represent Fiji and Oceania conti­nent in the 3rd International Olympic Committee (IOC) Young Reporters Pro­gramme which will be held in Buenos Aires from September 30 to October 19.

Narayan 22, who hails from Vuna village in Taveuni will be part of the Oceania team of young sports reporters that will undergo training prior to the Youth Olympics games which will be hosted in Buenos Aires in Ar­gentina.

The Oceania continent will be represented by Narayan (Fiji), Christel Homu(Vanuatu), Niall Anderson(New Zealand) and Lachlan McKirdy(Australia).

IOC Head of Media Operations and Young Reporters Programme Anthony Edgar con­firmed Narayan’s selection through corre­spondence yesterday.

“The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is delighted to inform you that you have been selected to represent your con­tinent at the 3rd IOC Young Reporters Pro­gramme, Buenos Aires 2018,” Edgar states.

Narayan is excited with the opportunity.

“I feel really excited and privileged to be selected as the only reporter to represent Fiji in the 2018 3rd IOC Young Reporters Pro­gramme in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

“I believe it is a lifetime opportunity for me to be part of IOC young reporter’s academy and be given the chance to travel and at the same time explore, expand my knowledge on reporting various types of sports during the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics,” Narayan said.

Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) chief exec­utive officer Lorraine Mar wished Narayan the very best.

“FASANOC is very pleased and proud that its nominee for the Young Reporters Pro­gramme, Grace Narayan, initially a nominee from the Fiji Sports Journalists Association, has been selected by the IOC as one of two Pacific Island journalists to participate in this program.

“In the same manner that the Youth Olym­pic Games is a pathway for our young ath­letes, we think that the Young Reporters Pro­gram is a perfect learning platform for a Fiji sports journalist. We trust that the expo­sure and training that Grace receives during this programme, will not only enhance here reporting skills but give her an appreciation of the Olympic Movement and the role that our athletes play in the big picture of the Olympic Family.

All The Best

“We wish Grace all the best in this adven­ture,” Mar said.

Young Reporters will receive intensive class and field training in written, photo­graphic, television, radio and new media reporting on the sport, as well as dedicated forums with guest speakers representing key international media organizations and senior Olympic officials.

The programme will include a behind-the-scenes tour of the International Broadcast Centre and meetings with Olympic Channel programmers and reporters, who will also be reporting from Buenos Aires.
