The Fiji Government is calling on all Fijians to come and join the celebration to mark the achievement of London Paralympics Golden Boy Iliesa Delana this Thursday in Suva.

Speaking to the media on the plan of the celebration this afternoon, Minister for Youth and Sports Viliame Naupoto said the government wants everyone to be part of the celebration.

Delana had won Fiji’s first gold medal in the F42 category (for single leg amputees without prosthesis) at the 2012 Summer Paralympics.

“This is an opportunity bfor everyone to be part of such a unique celebration where people living with physical disabilities have risen against all odds to prove that their disability does not limit to compete on a level playing field,” said Naupoto.

He said Delana has been a huge inspiration for all Fijians and his success is not only limited to the sporting arena.

As part of the celebration, Delana’s family will also be there to welcome him home.

The official celebration begins as soon as Delana arrives in Fiji tomorrow afternoon where he will be greeted by Naupoto before flying to Nausori on the same day.

On the following day, Delana will be escorted by the Fiji Police Band and the police guards through the main street of Suva from the Flea Market to Albert Park where he will be taken to the Vodafone arena where the celebration will continue.

“Delana will be joined by students from schools within Suva, members of the Fiji 7s Rugby Team, Fiji Olympians, and students from our special school.”

Delana will also be required to inspect the 50 men Guard of Honour by the 3FIR and the RFMF Band.

Naupoto said Fiji’s President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau will also make a brief speech.

He added weather will be a challenge for the preparation; however,  $35,000  has been set aside for the celebration.
