True Fi­jian

Save­naca Vakali­waliwa,

Delta, BC, Canada

I be­lieve that we Fi­jians are over the moon with what Ben Ryan and the boys have ac­com­plished in cre­at­ing Olympic Games his­tory for Fiji. In ap­pre­ci­a­tion, we read that Serua Prov­ince hon­oured and re­warded coach Ben Ryan with three acres of land, el­e­vated him as a Serua chief and re­named him Ratu Peni Raiyani La­tia­nara (FS 30/8). There is ru­mour that he will be given a Fi­jian pass­port mak­ing him a true Fi­jian. One gen­eral re­mark that we Fi­jians nor­mally get over­seas is that we have long names, which is a tongue twister for them. Now that our cham­pion coach has one, he is re­ally one of us and it would be sad to see him coach­ing an­other team against the Fi­jians. Vi­naka Vakalevu Ratu Peni Raiyani La­tia­nara, you are a true Fi­jian now.
