BRITISH High Commissioner Roderick Drummond gave some valuable tips to members of Team Fiji who will depart next week to compete at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.
The event will be held from July 23 to August 3 and Drummond hosted members of the team and officials for morning tea at his residence in Suva yesterday.
He said the competition was important but the trip to Glasgow would be a memorable one for the athletes and officials.
Drummond, who is from Dundee in Scotland (North-East of Glasgow), also gave a few tips on weather and some slags that could be helpful when the team was in Glasgow.
"It's great to have the Fijians back in the Commonwealth," he said.
"I am sure you athletes are going to have a great experience and the people of Glasgow are looking forward to hosting you.
"Don't be afraid, hold your head high and do Fiji proud," he told the athletes.
Swimming Fiji president Jerome Kado said Team Fiji appreciated the gesture by the High Commissioner.
"We appreciate the kind invitation and look forward to continued support towards the development of sports in the country," he said.
