Investing in sports

THE One Fiji party is looking to invest heavily in sports if it comes into power after the general election.

Party leader Vilimone Vosarogo told this newspaper on Monday that organising international and local sports events raised the profile of sports nationally, and created sports tourism.

"It also creates more elite sports people who can realise a living from their athletic talent, national teams with a winning culture to contribute to more patriotism and national pride.

"Strong local competitions for community-based teams that develop more young people who are disciplined, healthy, have self-respect and higher self-esteem, and respect for established rules and team-work," Mr Vosarogo said.

"Sport is left to national sporting bodies which are under-funded and ill-equipped to fully develop sports industries, and local sporting talent."
