The Special Olympics Fiji Games started with tennis and football yesterday.

Special Olympics Fiji chairman Bishwa Sidal said that the games will be a build to the world event in 2019.

“During the games, we will try to identify potential athletes for the four-yearly event in March 2019,” Sidal said

“We had two coaching workshops last year and we will have another soon.

“We have been selecting potential coaches and team managers to look after athletes.  We will have the finals trials before September.

“The Special Olympics will be held in Abu Dhabi.”

Sidal thanked all stakeholders for supporting Special Olympics Fiji. The competition ends tomorrow.
