About the Team
The Fijiana team – the Women’s Rugby Sevens team – qualified for their trip to Brazil by winning the Oceania Sevens against Samoa 55-0.
“We have been working very hard, we couldn’t wait for this moment and nothing was going to stop us from coming here and doing our job,” Fiji’s Rebecca Tavo, a former captain of Australia’s women’s side told Reuters.
Fiji has yet to win a medal of any kind and between the men’s and women’s rugby teams they stand a possibility to win two. The Women’s Rugby Sevens will be the first medals given out in team sports this competition so Fiji could be celebrating hard early.
