FIJI under-18 7s team captain, Ratu Epeneri Vulakauvaki, would be Fiji's flag bearer for the Youth Olympic Games closing ceremony today.

The Ratu Kadavulevu School student helped the side win a bronze medal at the event last week in Nanjing, China.

Fiji was also represented in athletics, hockey, swimming and weight lifting at the event.

The competitions at the event ended yesterday and Team Fiji chef de mission Carl Probert said they were getting ready to return to Fiji.

"The team officials unanimously voted that Fiji's flag bearer for the closing be the captain of the rugby team- Ratu Epeneri Vulakauvaki Uluiviti," he said.

"We are nearing the end of the trip and with no more events everyone is using the rest of the remaining time here for sightseeing and shopping."

Yesterday, Matelita Buadromo and Meli Malani represented the athletes at a discussion with the IOC President to provide feedback on the Games.

The team arrives back in Fiji on Saturday morning.

"The team will check out of the village after the closing ceremony tomorrow evening (today) to commence the long journey home at 1am Friday morning .

"The team will arrive in Nadi on Saturday August 30 at 7.20am on FJ392 from Hong Kong where they will be met by FASANOC President Reg Sanday before boarding a bus to Suva."
