Tabuatalei's Va'a dream boosted by timely funding

SALOME Tabuatalei's dream to participate in the world Va'a event was made possible through funding from Pacific Agencies Fiji Limited (PAFL).

Yesterday, the shipping company presented $5000 to Tabuatalei, who will be Fiji's lone participant in the Va'a World Sprints Championships in Brazil from August 12 to 17.

Dubbed Fiji's "super mum" for her consistent performance despite her age, Tabuatalei, who is a two-time Fiji Sportswoman of the Year, will compete in the senior masters 500 metres V1 sprints.

"I'm excited and thankful to receive the backing of Pacific Agencies. Thank you for believing in me," said Tabuatalei, who is a member of the Kaiwai Outrigger Paddling Club.

Through this partnership, the 54-year-old former middle distance champion becomes the brand ambassador for PAFL's Office and Household Relocations business.

PAFL general manager Craig Strong said they shared similar virtues as Tabuatalei.

"From a business perspective there is also a definite synergy between Salome and our brand. PAFL like Salome have served the people of Fiji for a long time, we centre our organisation on the behavioural values of humility, integrity and excellence."

The company's Office and Household Relocations business is a tailor-made door to door service for household removals and relocations using PAFL's worldwide network.

Tabuatalei departs Fiji for Brazil on Friday next week.
