Ni sa Bula Vinaka!!
Fiji first entered the Commonwealth in 1970 and were re-admitted in 1997 after a ten year lapse.
After making a surprise debut at the 1938 Empire Games in London, Fiji returned in 1950 to win 1 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze medals. They proudly lifted silver in the inaugural Rugby 7s in 1998, again in 2002 and the bronze in Melbourne in 2006.
The Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) is responsible for organising Fiji's participation in the South Pacific Games, Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games. They successfully hosted the 2003 South Pacific Games in Suva with 20 nations taking part in 34 sports.
Fiji was suspended from the Commonwealth on 1 September 2009, in accordance with the decision of the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG) of 31 July 2009. This suspension was lifted on 14 March 2014 and they were therefore a late entry to the Glasgow 2014 programme. However, they still secured a bronze in Weightlifting thanks to Apolonia Vaivai in the Women’s 75kg category.
