Bahama bound athletes say goodbye

Update: 2:34PM TEAM Fiji to the Commonwealth Youth Games was at Borron House this morning to say their formal goodbyes to the Head of State, President Jioji Konrote.

The “I Tatau”, normally presented at State House is being conducted at Borron House because the President’s official residence is under repair.

The ceremonies which began at 9:45am is a tradition for all national delegations who depart the nation to compete at an international event.
