The Fijian Rugby Players Are Pure Legend

fiji playersA few months back I wrote about how the Fijian Rugby team helped the flight attendants serve meals on a plane during a medical emergency, well loons, today they won gold at the Rio Olympics. It was  in fact the first ever Olympic medal for this tiny little nation. However, it wasn’t just the win that has brought them so much respect and admiration but how they accepted their triumph . Each and every player knelt before Princess Anne as they received their medals and clapped three times, which  is traditionally performed during a Fijian Kava ceremony, signifying the bringing together of two families.  Fiji should be so proud of the 12 men who have shone a glowing light on their island. Well done.
