“BEING part of the Youth Olympic Games is a great achievement for me and I hope to deliver my best performance and make Fiji proud.”

This was the sentiment of Team Fiji’s flag bearer Grace Yee after the opening ceremony of the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Argentina on Sunday, October 7, 2018.

Sixteen-year-old Yee represented Fiji in front of more than 10,000 spectators and expressed feelings of both nervousness and excitement.

Yee said it was an honour and privilege to represent Fiji on the big stage and in front of a big crowd.

Yee started her competition with a loss in the women’s singles table tennis event to Poland yesterday.

About 4000 young athletes from 206 countries and regions around the world are participating in 32 sports events.
