The Minister of Youth and Sports Laisenia Tuitubou yesterday launched the 2018 Fiji University Games in Suva.

Celebrated around the world by universities and tertiary institu­tions on September 20, the overall aim is to develop sports from grass­roots to competition level.

“This is an opportunity to under­line the social role played by the universities,” Tuitubou said

“This is a great example of brin­ing communities together.

Fiji University Sports Associa­tion president Alifereti Cawanibu­ka is happy with the turnout of students

“Students are getting more in­volved and this is a good sign,” Cawanibuka said

“The right attitudes need to be developed at tertiary level so that they can look after their health and lifestyle in future.”

TAKING PART KEY: HARE

The Pacific Regional Seminary football team aim to do their best during the 2018 Fiji University Games which started in Suva yes­terday

The three-day competition start­ed with rugby and football at the University of the South Pacific grounds.

PRS captain Timothy Hare said the players have been preparing well.
