Determind to be fittest: Bari

Verenaisi Bari’s determination to keep driving herself has led her to be the fittest player in the Fiji and Fijiana 7s team.

The new addition from Moala Village in Nadi who will be part of the Fijiana 7s team to the Oceania Rugby Super Sevens said it was an eagerness to do one more that led to her performance.

“I just keep telling myself to keep going, do it for my family,” Bari told FijiLive.

Fiji Rugby officials note that Bari recorded 19.1 on the Yoyo test, compared to her teammates that scored 16.

The men’s national 7’s team's fittest player holds scored 18 on the Yoyo fitness test.

Bari added her late mother who passed away last year has been a source of strength.

I know she will be proud of me, and I do all I can in her memory as well as to make my family proud.”

She will be competing for a spot in the 13-member squad for the Commonwealth Games in England next month.

The Oceania 7s kicks off this Friday and will finish on Sunday.
