Fiji political situation forces Oceania athletics meeting out of Suva

11:00 am on 5 December 2006

The Oceania Athletics grand prix series is to be held in Ba and Sigatoka in Fiji.

The series was to have taken place at the National Stadium in Suva, but the uncertain political climate in Fiji has forced the Oceania body to relocate the series away from the only synthetic tracks in Suva to grass tracks in the West of Fiji.

Oceania Athletics executive director Yvonne Mullins says Xavier College grounds in Ba will host the first series on the 9th followed by the second one in Sigatoka.
