THE Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) and Toyota Worldwide launched the Olympic partnership for the upcoming 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. The launch was conducted at the Asco Motors showroom in Nabua, Suva.

Oceania National Olympic Committee (ONOC) executive director Dennis Miller said Olympic Fiji was grateful for Toyota Worldwide’s partnership which would help in Team Fiji’s preparation for the games.

“Toyota has been a top partner of FASANOC in previous years and in line with the Olympics 2020, Toyota is our sustainable key partner as it will be working with the committee in the upcoming Olympic Games regarding transportation resources,” Miller said.

“They have provided sustainable solution to the games, not only on cars, but other key needs.

“If you have been to a game such as Olympics, you will realise that it’s such a big event. Commercial partners such as Toyota lead to the success of the event.

“Toyota has also funded the Olympic channel which is a new groundbreaking platform to experience the power of sports and has played a vital role in providing channel to the fans at anytime, anywhere and at any device.”

Asco Motors CEO Craig Sims said the company’s assistance was to help Fijian athletes shine at the games.

“We want to improve the performance of our athletes by providing resources that they needed,” Simms said.
