Thursday, May 01, 2014

PACIFIC sprint ace Banuve Tabakaucoro received a major boost to his Olympic dream.

Yesterday, the Bau bullet who is a brand ambassador with Digicel Fiji renewed his sponsorship contract with the mobile company, hailed the 'Road to Rio' which will boost preparation for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Tabakaucoro who has a personal time of 10.33 seconds said he acknowledged his sponsorship for the assistance.

He said he would achieve his dream of competing at the Olympics. "I want to thank my sponsors Digicel for the new contract signing," he said.

"I'm pretty sure that everything included in the contract will help me bring down those times that I've wanted to bring down for so many years and the dream of going to the Olympics will be achieved, if not this year then early on next year."

Tabakaucoro's sponsorship value is about $50,000 in cash and in kind.

Employment opportunities will also be available for Tabakaucoro at the mobile company.
