The Damodar Aquatic Centre and the National Hockey Centre have officially reopened.

The handover ceremony of the National Aquatic Centre from the People’s Republic of China to the Fiji Sports Council marks a moment for Fiji’s swimming and hockey teams, which now have access to enhanced training facilities.

The event was graced by the presence of Zhou Zian, the Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Fiji, highlighting the strong partnership between the two nations.

Gilbert Vakalalabre, the chief executive of the Fiji Sports Council, expressed his gratitude for the partnership and development.

“We are marking a significant reopening of these facilities with remarkable enhancements, thanks to our partnership with the People’s Republic of China.”

Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka, who presided over the official ceremony, also extended his gratitude to China for their continued development support.

“These state-of-the-art facilities not only enhance our athletes’ training experience but also position Fiji as a potential host for future international sporting events,” stated the Prime Minister.

The opening of these facilities is expected to significantly contribute to the performance and prospects of Fiji’s swim and hockey teams, enabling them to train at a level that meets international standards.
