Kolinisau named as Fiji’s flag bearer at Olympics

Fiji Sevens captain Osea Kolinisau will be his country’s flag bearer at the opening ceremony at next month’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Kolinisau is excited by the prospect of leading the Pacific Island nation’s contingent at the Olympics and is determined for their Sevens team to win a gold medal.

“This opportunity comes once in a life time,” he told the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation.

“We will never get an opportunity like this again to play on a world stage like the Olympics because it’s the mecca of sports and I’m telling the boys to cherish it and give it our best and all.”
