FIJI chef de mission to the Youth Olympics Carl Probert was satisfied with the performance of Team Fiji in China.
He said Fiji managed to win a bronze medal but the exposure received by the team was a huge learning curve to all athletes.
Probert said competition would inspire the athletes to strive for higher goals in their future meets.
And with the Rio Olympics in 2016, Probert is confident some of these athletes would do the country proud.
"I think we did extremely well and I thank all athletes for their effort," he said.
"They don't get this kind of exposure at their age and to be part of the Olympics is a lifetime opportunity.
"To be the only Oceania country to win a medal in rugby is a huge achievement for Fiji.
"And certainly their exposure will boost their morale for the Rio Games.
"I am satisfied with their performance and for the athletes it will be a life experience they will never forget."
Probert also commended the hockey team for their effort.
"Though the side failed to win any games but I believe the exposure was a huge learning curve for the girls.
"The challenge is for the athletes to stay on the right track and work hard to qualify for the next Rio Games."
