RUGBY sevens legend Waisale Serevi is rewriting a new chapter in his life by becoming the first indigenous Fijian to set up shop in the busy city of Downtown Seattle in the US.
Located in this high-class area among skyscrapers housing brand names, the shop is the latest in his string of successes, including his rugby academy shop which has become a hit in the US.
Fiji's favourite rugby son — who played for his country of birth for 21 years, winning the Rugby Sevens World Cup twice (1997 and 2005) — said he was humbled being a Fijian among professional American businessmen.
Speaking to The Fiji Times, Serevi thanked God, his family and his hard-working team for achieving another milestone.
"My colleagues and I have been building this business for about two years now and while apparel has always had a place alongside youth programming, for a long time we didn't have a home that would allow for a retail shop," said the Qarani, Gau, native.
