Fiji Gas is a proud partner of the Coca Cola Fiji Secondary Schools Athletic Championship. The Official Lighting of the 2016 Games Torch Relay was held yesterday at the Coca Cola Head Office in Laucala Beach, Suva where the cauldron was lit by two athletes from the championship schools Natabua High School (boy’s division champions) and Jasper Williams High School (girl’s division champions) amongst the official partners.
Official partners of the coke games, Fiji Gas, Fiji Water and Pacific Energy were amongst those attending the Official Lighting ceremony.
There will only be the Champions Leg this year for the National Torch Relay. The month long relay around the country was cancelled last month due to the effects of Cyclone Winston and to allow for the proper recovery of many schools and areas that were severely affected. The event itself will continue to be the biggest Secondary School Sporting Event in the South Pacific. There will be over 2,500 competitors from 130 schools.
Hans Reiher the CEO of Fiji Gas will be amongst other official partners on Game day to award medals and prizes to the successful athletes.
In a statement at the Official Lighting of the 2016 Games Torch Relay, Mr. Reiher said, “We at Fiji Gas are very proud to continue our commitment in supporting an active healthy lifestyle among all Fijians in partnership with Coca Cola for the 2016 Coke Games. I am especially proud to be involved this year. Fiji Gas is celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year.”
He went on to add, “We have been involved with the Coca-Cola Games for many many years now and it is our longest running sponsorship of any sporting event. We look forward to another successful year and thank the organizers, Coca Cola and the Fiji Secondary Schools Association for having us on board again this year.”
The cauldron will remain lit at the Coca Cola Head Office for 10 days. The Fiji Gas Torch and cauldron will be carried from the Coca Cola Head Office to the ANZ Stadium by the boys of Natabua High School and the girls of Jasper Williams High School on Friday 29th April where the official opening of the Games will be held.
Fiji Gas first began supplying gas to Fiji in 1956. It has grown into the largest LPG Company in the Pacific islands.
