Rogoimuri ruled out of 2012 Paralympics

Fiji will be represented solely by Iliesa Delana at the 2012 Paralympics Games to begin later this month in Cardiff, England.

This is after Lusiana Rogoimuri was ruled out because of injuries she sustained in a car accident in Wainibuku early this month.

Fiji Paralympics president Ratu Sela Rayawa told FijiLive that the Daku lass was ordered by medics to take a 30-day rest before she can resume usual duties,

“Rogoimuri had been admitted at the ICU Hospital since the car accident on the first week of August, 2012,” Rayawa said.

“She was discharged from hospital on August, 21 but was advised to rest at home for at least 30 days before resuming normal duties.

“So, based on the medics report, Rogoimuri has been ruled out.”

Rogoimuri was to have participated in the 100 and 200 metre events.

Meanwhile, Iliesa Delana who will participate in high jump is undergoing final preparation' in Cardiff with chef de mission Sainiana Tukana and his coach Fred Fatiaki.

Delana, Fiji’s male amputee high jumper, qualified with merit last year in the IPC World Athletics Championship in Christchurch, New Zealand. His current best jump of 1.73m ranks him the world number two in the F42 class and event.

The Paralympic Games begins Wednesday, August 29, 2012, and ends Sunday, September 9, 2012 and will feature more than 4,200 athletes to compete in 20 sports.
