Sikeli Qounadovu In Dubai

FOR the Base Gym in downtown Dubai, having the Fiji Airways 7s team was encouraging and inspiring

Gymn co-owner Emily Estaff said they were happy that they could provide the space for the side to prepare for this week's Dubai 7s.

The gym is co-owned by Emily and her husband Craig. They employ three full-time staff.

"We are so happy that we were able to provide a space for the Fijian team, so that they could prepare for their competition. It was such an honour for them to thank us by singing "vanua domoni na noqu vanua". It will remain as one of my most favourite moments, but we feel that we should be thanking them! Their presence was inspiring. They reminded our community that gym-work isn't the only fitness out there. They showed us that no matter how serious the competition is, there is always time to have fun and enjoy training. They demonstrated that when it's time to work, you focus, and you work hard."

Emily said they would be cheering for Fiji this weekend.
