The 2018 Commonwealth Games will be the highlight of squash player Sailesh Pala.

Pala’s Career

The 40-year old has been playing squash for the past 19 years and is optimistic of a positive performance.

“I will be playing against world class players and I have to play really well, it will be tough,” Pala said.

“This Commonwealth Games will be the highlight of my playing career and I’m grateful to be here.”

Pala will be competing in the singles and the doubles event with Romit Parshottam.

“I will do my very best for my family and country,”Pala said.

“We have been to our competition venues and we are excited and can’t wait to compete.”

All Is Well: Bower

Chef de mission Patrick Bower has confirmed that Team Fiji athletes are all fit and fine at the Games Village.

He made the comment after some athletes from other countries were reported to be sick due to a virus at the Games Village.

“No one in the village has been affected. We were warned about the virus during the morning meeting but there is nothing major that we have to worry about,” Bower said.

Team Fiji head of medical Dr Jone Nasome has given the all clear.

“Dr Nasome has done the checks and has informed us that athletes are well.

“But we will take precautionary measures since the warning has been issued.”
