Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has stressed to the students that they don't have to leave the Games with a medal to head home proud, because making it to this stage you have made your families proud, your school proud as well as your country.

While closing the Coca Cola Games, Bainimarama says that we have made history with this being the biggest Coca-Cola Games we've ever had.

He also acknowledged the athletes that have travelled the farthest, crossed oceans and climbed mountains to get to the games from as far off as Rotuma, Lau, and Kadavu.

Bainimarama also thanked everyone that has been vaccinated for their cooperation, patience, and faith that Fiji is back.

He says our economy is growing, our students are back in their classrooms and our athletes can finally compete on this national stage.

Bainimarama says that today these students meet as rivals but someday soon they will meet as team mates representing Fiji against the best in the world.

He commended everyone on their sportsmanship and wished them all the best on their future endeavours.
