Get your costumes ready for Canada Sevens and win your­self a cool $500.

A Burnaby, British Columbia phar­maceutical company has partnered with S1 Sports by offering fans with a cash prize of $250 a day for the best costumes display during the Canada Sevens.

Pure Integrative Pharmacy manag­er, Rohini Deo who is an avid sevens fan, says the monetary offer will ex­tract the best out of Fijians in terms of costumes, get noticed and at the same time and win cash.

“There’s national pride, and then there’s costumes that pride the fans,”Singh said.

“Sporting fans around Canada go to lengthens to honour and often lam­poon their nation symbol, we have giv­en Fiji 7s fans the same opportunity.

“Sevens has a huge following among Canadian Fijians since the inaugural Canada Sevens and we feel the need to kick it up a notch to the already attire frenzy event”.

Deo said the spirited fan and or fans will be identified through the over­head junbotron, in the stands and the concourse area who would then be reached out and declared the winner for each day.

S1 spokesman, Subarmani Reddy said the offer can’t be beaten as it gives real time Fijian fans to show their true patriotism in the way of at­tires that attract.

“It’s a cool $500 to be won.”Reddy said.

Reddy said the agreement between Pure Integrative Pharmacy and S1 Sports is unique and for years’ to come.

“The idea stemmed after seeing col­ourful and some funny costumes in the last three years’ running of the Vancouver Sevens.”

The Canada Sevens gets underway on Sunday (Fiji time), ending with the crowning of the champion on Mon­day.

Moral and spiritual support is need­ed for the Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team during the Canada Sevens in Vancou­ver this weekend.


These words were echoed by Pastor Lesi Korobasaga.

“We need to give the team both the moral and spiritual support to our boys,” the former Fiji lightweight champion said.

“God first in anything we do as in rugby and life”.

Pastor Lesi is calling on the Cana­dian Fijians who will be at the B.C. Place Stadium or at home to pray for the team and cheer on with all the heart.

“Let’s all pray for the team. The boys have always put God first”.

He said the team didn’t do too well at the USA Sevens in Las Vegas last weekend but there’s always that hope the team will turn things around for the better and retain the Canada Sev­ens.

“We need to understand the power of prayers,” the former Olympian added.
