Miller clears air

Athletics Fiji
Wednesday, April 02, 2014

ALBERT Miller has responded to media reports that elected committee members remain as executives of Athletics Fiji.

And despite an annual general meeting over the weekend in Nadi whereby new office bearers were elected, Miller, the Athletics Fiji president, stated that the present committee remains.

"I need to reassure the athletics public that the plans and developments in Fiji are on course and we the constitutionally elected committee are still in control," he said in a press statement.

Athletics Fiji vice-president Joe Rodan Jr said they would try to solve the matter for the benefit of the sport.

"There are many questions in regards to the authority, mandate and procedural matters that basically renders the Saturday meeting unconstitutional and illegitimate but above all does not represent the voice of the affiliated clubs to Athletics Fiji," said Rodan Jr.

"There is current discussion on how this should be rectified but our priority is development and support for athletics especially with important competitions coming up like the Easter games and the secondary school athletics to name a few.

"Our main role as an organisation is to protect the sport and the interest of the clubs affiliated to it so we cannot allow individuals or groups with self-interest to undermine the work we have built together for so many years.

"There is currently attempt by Athletics Fiji to resolve the issue and there is optimism that some amicable solution will be reached soon for the benefit of the athletes."
