SHANGRI-LA Fijian Resort and Spa have been crowned the new overall winners of the 28th Bilibili Race in Sigatoka yesterday.

The team finished as second best to Warwick Fiji Resort and Spa last year but moved a notch up after winning eight of the 18 events.

The men's team defended the bibilibi race, edging team Naviti Resort and Spa and Sofitel Resort who finished second and third respectively.

Team Shangri-La's Fijian collected 35 points, Outrigger on the Lagoon finished second with 17 while Warwick, Sofitel Resort, Naviti Resort and Spa and the University of the South Pacific were all tied with 13 in third position.

Twelve hotels participated at the event.

Sofitel, Intercontinental Hotel and South Sea Cruisers were the three Nadi-based teams while Suva's Holiday Inn and USP travelled to Sigatoka.

Event organiser Una Murray said the event was a success.

"Congratulations to Fijian for winning the event this year. They were runners up to Warwick last year but now they came back to walk away with the title," she said.

"It was a very successful event and we were happy with how the event ended."

Murray thanked all their sponsors that supported the event.
