The Fiji National Sports Commission made a profit of $16,765 for the financial year that ended on July 31, 2020, states its annual report that was tabled in Parliament last week.

The organisation recorded an operating revenue of $7.678million compared to total expenses of $7.661million.

Chairman Peter Mazey said in the report COVID-19 had an impact on its operations.

“The adverse circumstances have made us closer with our international neighbours.

“As one of the first countries in the region to have safe sport guidelines in place, we have been able to provide a leading example of what was required. The sporting community has become closer as a common threat has united us all. COVID–19 has meant that what we may have lost at the elite level of sport, we are making gains at the developmental level.

“Our increased focus on more communal sporting events is expected to lead to a new group of talented athletes being identified. Of course, as we have restarted community programs, there are new protocols in place that must be observed.”
