LITIANA Loabuka's contract as the chief executive officer of the Fiji Sports Council has been extended for another three years.

Her contract expired on January 5 and the council chairman Peter Mazey said they had received a large number of applications for the position.

"Since Litiana's contract was up, as a normal practice of a corporate body, we advertised the position," he said.

"There was a number of people who applied for the position and those applications that were considered were good candidates."

Mazey said when making their decision, they looked at Loabuka's record and her achievements during her term.

"All of the final applicants were interviewed by the full board and after due consideration and going through all applications, the board unanimously approved the re-appointment of Litiana."

He said the council had taken a new approach and this would make Loabuka's job more challenging and demanding.

"The Sports Council has to look in a new direction now, along a more commercial focus so that we can maintain our facilities."
