A team made up of the oldest and the youngest competitor in Team Fiji managed to win gold at the Pacific Mini Games in Wallis and Futuna.
Veteran Graham Southwick and Apimeleki Tuicaucau won the team gold medal in the hobie cat competition at Liku on Wallis after the 10-day event.
Southwick is 68 years old while Tuicaucau is 14, and the two actually won bronze in their event.
However, the husband and wife team of Shayne and Torika Brodie won the overall event ensuring Fiji the team gold medal as well.
For Southwick, the PMG marked 50 years of regional competition and for Tuicaucau, it was his first competition outside Fiji.
Tuicaucau said the competition was a good experience for him and it brought out the best in him.
"The competition was very tough and I had to work really hard with Graham to earn the medal," he said.
"We also capsized four times but each time we got back up and we continued with more determination."
He said Southwick's encouragement kept him going through the event.
"In the first week, we did well and then in the second week, the wind grew stronger, it was raining very heavily and the waves were huge.
"But he (Southwick) told me to remain focused and to work hard so we just kept on working."
As for Southwick, he said the medal was his first and could also be his last because he was considering more coaching and participating in selected international regattas and promoting Fiji sailing.
"It has been a privilege to represent Fiji for 30 years in the Pacific Games and the time is approaching where I will promote the next generation into the Pacific Games and internationally," he said.
However, he added he would continue to compete until someone in Fiji beats him.
"I know it will be time for me to stop when someone in Fiji beats me."
He also praised Tuicaucau for his efforts in the competition.
"He is a young boy with lots of potential and he has a long way to go."
