TEAM Fiji has arrived home safely from the 2012 London Olympic Games with valuable experiences and lessons for the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.
The last batch of officials and athletes arrived yesterday after almost spending a month in London.
Team Fiji Chef de Mission Chris Yee said the participation at the London Olympics was Fiji's best ever and hailed the nine Fijian athletes for making the nation proud.
Glen Kable (shooting), Leslie Copeland (javelin), Danni Alakija (athletics), Josateki Naulu (judo), Manueli Tulo and Maria Liku (weightlifting), Paul Elaisa and Matelita Buadromo (swimming) and Robert Elder (archery) recorded good results in the two weeks long event.
"In fact for the first time, six athletes qualified on merit and three qualified on universality (wild card), so this itself was an achievement," Yee said.
With majority of the athletes that competed were below the age of 30, Yee said the London Games served as a good platform for them to set their priorities right for the Rio Games. He said the athletes should set higher goals and aim for medals in the next Olympic Games.
"We will work with the various federations on a four year plan and focus not only on qualifying but winning medals in the next Olympics," Yee added.
