Women are breaking barriers in sports: PM

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says women have broken barriers through sports and are excelling in life.   
 
He made this comment at the opening of the 2022 Courts Inter District Championship (IDC) at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva last night.
 
"Women are participating in sports in Fiji at a level we only dreamed of a generation ago."
 
"For decades, past Governments wrongly treated sport like a men's only professional."
 
"We are finally breaking that bias by fully recognising and supporting the contribution of women and girls in sports."
 
"Sporting women should be able to make their living doing what they love and excel at every Fijian women athlete has my firmest support of following their athletic ambition as far as it can carry them."
