Fiji’s peak sports body says it wasn’t told about it’s ongoing ban from the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Malaysia’s proposal that sports bans be lifted allowing Fiji to compete in New Delhi next year went unsupported by the Commonwealth leaders who met in Trinidad and Tobago last week. The Fiji’s Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee says its still waiting for official notification from the head of the Commonwealth Games Federation, Mike Fennell.

Presenter: Tanya O’Shea
Speakers: Vidhya Lakhan, President of Fiji’s Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee

    Aiarse should sue the Commonwealth and demand that the Australian and all other papers in the world subscribe to the journalism of hope. It would not be hard to pretend that Fiji is a normal member of the international community. We could read some positive reporting on the performance of imaginary athletes in the Sun and elsewhere.
