Sanday: This year's sports awards will be different from last year

THE Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) expects a bigger and better Fiji Annual Sports Awards later this month.

FASANOC president Reg Sanday said they had a big audience at the event last year and expect the number to increase this time around.

FASANOC is a joint organiser of the awards function with the Fiji Sports Council and Fiji National Sports Commission.

"Before, FASANOC and the Fiji Sports Council held separate annual sports awards," he said.

"It was confusing for athletes and a waste and duplication of resources, so we decided to combine the two events.

"Last year was a record crowd and we are looking forward to another good turnout this year."

A total of 74 nominations have been confirmed for the event that will be held on February 21 at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.

"In my opinion the number of nominations — 74 — is excellent."

"Petero Civoniceva was the joint committee's decision to be guest speaker and he is an excellent choice being a role model for upcoming athletes and young people.

Sanday said this year, the awards would be a little different from last year.

"The awards night is the pinnacle sporting event in Fiji where all national sports bodies are given the opportunity to nominate in the various categories and so recognise performances of the athletes and their contributions to sports in various categories such as technical officials, volunteers, coaches and administrators.

"It's also one of those rare events where sporting personalities, parents and stakeholders can come together in an informal and friendly atmosphere to honour athletes in their quest to excel in their God-given talents."
