1998 Mereoni Vibose - Athletics

1998 Mereoni Vibose

As a young child in Nadroga, the 1998 inductee used to be seen hurling sticks or throwing stones. This humble beginning blossomed into a full - blown career in athletic field events, specialising in discus and javelin.

This athletic career saw a span from secondary school athletics representing Adi Cakobau School to regionally and international meets, representing Fiji in six South Pacific Games, two Commonwealth Games and two World Athletics Championships.=

This athlete has a very impressive record which includes
South Pacific Games

1969 Papua New Guinea discus - silver javelin - silver

1975 Guam discus - bronze javelin - gold

1979 Fiji javelin - gold

1983 Samoa discus - silver javelin - silver

1987 New Caledonia javelin - gold

1991 Papua New Guinea discus - bronze

Commonwealth Games

1974 New Zealand discus -11th javelin - 7th

1982 Australia discus - 9th javelin - 8th

During the 1983 National Athlete Championships in Suva, she set a Fiji record of 47.76 metres in the discus and in the 1987, again in Suva, set a javelin recode of 53.18 metres. Both records still stand at the time of her induction.

This outstanding athlete retires from Athletics in 1991 after 22 years of being the best athlete in the South Pacific Islands in her chosen discipline, having won 3 gold, 4 silver and 2 bronze medals during her period.
