Sports Is Important To Life Says Former Flying Fijian Seremaia Bai

Sports plays an important part in life was the word from former Flying Fijian Captain and Women In Sports Commission advocate Seremaia Bai, at Jai Narayan College in Suva today.

Seremaia Bai had sessions with around 40 girls from Year 9 and Year 11 on the basics of rugby, social skills, sports leadership, the importance of staying fit and effects of Non-Communicable Diseases.

"We are also pushing for more women to participate in sports including sports administration, sports management, coaching and refereeing," he said.

"Sports also contributes to life skills which is one of the important skills we would like to impart on these young women."

With the WIS Commission's priority of making "Sports more than a Game" young girls between the age of 13 to 16 enjoyed the activities that were planned for the day.

Year 9 student Daisy Niumataiwalu said the activities were a lot of fun especially the rugby version of netball.

"But I also got to learn how important it was to get fit especially with a lot of Non Communicable Diseases that affect girls nowadays," she said.

Fellow classmate Farovia Inia echoed Daisy's comments and said that girls had a responsibility to the community and healthy was one of them.

"What we learnt today is that sports also allow us to be better leaders and role models in the community," she said.

The Women In Sports Commission program is funded under the International Olympic Committee Olympic Solidarity and its Gender Equality and Diversity programs.
