Open sports forum

THE Fiji National Sports Commission is happy with the feedback during the annual conference for national sporting organisations yesterday.

More than 50 people attended the conference at the De Vos on the Park in Suva where an open discussion was held to identify and work out solutions to issues surrounding each organisation.

Commission chairman Peter Mazey said the discussions were very fruitful and some issues were raised that the commission, Fiji Sports Council and the Youth and Sports Ministry would look into.

"There was very good feedback from the sporting organisations to the commission, the council and the ministry and there were also thanks," he said.

"But mostly, it was just about dialogue and the two main things that we talked about were the Pacific Games in 2015 and the Rio Olympics in 2016."

Mazey said they also had lawyers present on constitutions and legal options which originated from the Athletics Fiji saga.

He said those sporting organisations which did not attend missed out on a chance to have a fruitful discussion with the commission, council and the Minister for Youth and Sports, Commander Viliame Naupoto.

"What most of these organisations need is better understanding and proper administration and in the dialogue we talked about it and there were some other issues that we will definitely look into."
