FIJI'S most successful Paralympic athlete so far, Iliesa Delana, has dedicated his win to the people of Fiji.
The national hero made the comment to Digicel Fiji right after winning his gold medal in London yesterday.
Delana is a brand ambassador for Digicel and member of their customer care team.
In a statement, Digicel said Mr Delana told them he thanked God for his blessings and that his win was like a dream come true.
"The competition was tough, as there were many strong athletes from all over the world," he said.
Mr Delana said the final took place in the presence of 80,000 spectators and he knew that he had to do his best as he was carrying the flag of his beloved country.
Digicel Fiji CEO David Butler said Digicel Fiji as well as other Digicel markets in the Pacific were delighted with Mr Delana's achievement and said he had put Fiji on the world map with his historic win.
"As the whole nation celebrates his victory, I on behalf of Digicel Fiji extend my hearty congratulations to Mr Delana and team Fiji for the remarkable performance at the Paralympics," Mr Butler said.
