EIGHT sports would feature in the Sports Fair that would be held in conjunction with the Olympic Day celebration on Saturday.

Athletics, basketball, hockey, women's football, karate, women's 7s rugby, table tennis and volleyball would be offering "come and try" activities at the My Suva Park during the Olympic Day Fun Run.

A statement from the organisers, Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC), said the Ministry of Health Wellness Team would also be offering free health checks for participants.

Meanwhile, FIJI Water has come on board as presenting partner for the Olympic Day celebrations and joins McDonalds, Coca-Cola and Crest Chicken for the event.

FASANOC vice-president Manasa Baravilala said they welcomed the iconic brand in joining the celebrations.

FIJI Water CEO Rokoseru Nabalarua said they were eager to join the event which was one of the battle grounds in the fight against Non-Communicable Diseases.

The celebrations would also be held in Nadi on the same day where women's champion — national triathlete Nau Dakuilagi — would defend her title against runner-up Lavenia Dickinson of Natabua High School.
