THE Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) hailed their Olympic Day celebrations last Saturday a huge success.

More than 400 participants were at the My Suva Park in the Capital City while more than 100 were at McDonalds in Nadi.

Apart from the main attraction, the Olympic Day Fun Run, a Sports Fair consisting of eight sports was also held in Suva, said a statement from FASANOC.

"The Sports Fair, funded by the International Olympic Committee Olympic Solidarity Program, was a hive of activity and gave children and adults the opportunity to try a sport at stations set up by Athletics Fiji, Basketball Fiji, Karate Fiji, Women's Football, Table Tennis Fiji and FASANOC's Stop HIV&NCDs program," said the statement.

"Sports volunteers manning the sports stations included former track star and 2004 Olympian Makelesi Batimala, who also paced herself in the Olympic Day Run.

"Basketball Fiji Hoops for Health Coaches, having just completed their coaches training, also had the opportunity to test their Hoops for Health coaching skills by introducing the 3 on 3 basketball program at the Basketball Station."

The statement said another educational initiative on the day was "Art on the Go" which involved children in learning activities on the Olympic Movement and its Values.
