Fiji Badminton Honoured

The Fiji Badminton Committee was honoured to be recognized at the 2018 Fiji Sports Awards winning the Good Governance Award held on the 1st of March at the FMF Gymnasium in Laucala Bay.

Fiji Badminton was acknowledged for its good administration, transparency and good governance.

Team Fiji Badminton Section Manager Karyn Gibson said that it was a pleasant surprise to win the award and was a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Fiji Badminton Committee who continue to give back to the sport.

"It is indeed pleasing that our voluntary efforts are recognised in this way and we would sincerely like to thank the Fiji National Sports Commission and FASANOC as we look forward to exciting times ahead with the upcoming Pacific Games in Samoa and further development of the sport through our work with our upcoming players," she said.

Fiji Badminton's hard work and dedication was evident after 17-year-old athlete Chang Ho Kim won a silver medal at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Argentina.

Fiji National Sports Commission's Chairman Peter Mazey congratulated Fiji Badminton for displaying good governance in the sport.

FASANOC CEO Lorraine Mar said that as a former Fiji Badminton player and administrator, she was proud to see the National Federation achieve this milestone, adding that good governance was an essential pillar for all National Federations.

The Fiji Sports Awards was hosted by the Fiji Sports Council in partnership with fellow stakeholders, the Fiji National Sports Commission and the Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC).
