Recently representing the Fiji Shadows rugby team at the Fiji Bitter Sapphire Marist 7s, Mr Wainiqolo is part of the national 7s training squad for the Tokyo Olympics in July, this year.

Originally from Rakiraki, Ra, the young rugger said he had always dreamt of donning the white Fiji Rugby jersey – a dream now becoming a reality.
