More sports have potential to qualify for Commonwealth Games – FBC News


There are a few sports that have the potential to qualify for the upcoming Commonwealth Games.

With the pandemic still affecting most sports competitions, the Fijian Sports Association and the National Olympic Committee will be looking at the performance of each sport in order to bring its athletes through.

FASANOC chief executive Lorraine Mar said only the men’s rugby sevens team had qualified for the Commonwealth Games with other qualifying tournaments pending.

“So any team sport that would be beach volleyball, hockey, rugby sevens, and besides, I think table tennis and certainly weightlifting, they’ll have to qualify.”

Mar says they have their own criteria for bringing a Fiji squad contingent to Birmingham.

“We have a minimum qualifying requirement for each of the different types of games, so for the Pacific Games there is one, the Commonwealth Games there is one, and the Olympics there is one.”

The Fiji National Sports Commission has set aside $ 500,000 for the participation and preparation of the 15 eligible sports federations.

The other sports will have to wait for the qualifying tournaments to send their athletes before the deadline.

The Commonwealth Games will be held in England in less than a year.
