THE President of Fiji Ratu Epeli Nailatikau will visit Team Fiji when they are at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland later this month.

This was confirmed by the president himself when officials and athletes of the squad presented their itatau to him yesterday.

Ratu Epeli asked the athletes to give more than their best in their respective events at the meet.

"I will be there myself and I hope to see some of you compete," he said.

"Bring success to Fiji when you are there and nowadays doing your best is not enough, you have to do a lot more."

Ratu Epeli said those who had already been to the event would know what it was like but it would be a new adventure for the younger athletes.

"For the young athletes, this event is a stepping stone so take every advantage of it."

Team Fiji chef de mission Lyndall Fisher said they were excited to be going to the event.

"We are very excited and pleased with the words of encouragement by the President," he said.

"The first batch of athletes and officials leave on Monday while the rest will depart later."
