THE Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) has given sporting federations until the end of the month to register for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.

Athletes from six sports including athletics, judo, lawn bowls, shooting, swimming and weightlifting will make up Team Fiji.

Yesterday, FASANOC announced the six sporting federations whereby rugby 7s, hockey and netball missed out after Fiji received a late invitation from the Commonwealth Games Committee.

FASANOC's Lyndall fisher said during a press conference, "They needed to finalise the names before the closing date which is on June 11.

"We will have to sit and look at the names to finalise them. So we're giving the federations until the end of the month to submit all the names of athletes."

The Commonwealth Games will be staged in Glasgow from July 23 to August 3.

Fisher also confirmed that judo, shooting and weightlifting have confirmed athletes who have high chances of participating in Scotland.

"For the time being, there is a shooter competing overseas who is likely to go and also judoka Josateki Naulu and Apoloni Vaivai from weightlifting are likely to be part of Team Fiji."

Naulu and Vaivai are on interim International Olympic Committee (IOC) scholarships in Japan and New Caledonia respectively.
