Delana's welcome back

from w

It's amazing how hyped up Fiji is about Iliesa Delana as a hero now, when you consider how difficult his training program had been.  No hype those days, and very little money to help with his training program.  Congratulations of course go to Iliesa for his achievement in gaining a gold medal at the Paraolympics in London, but it is interesting how the program upon his return to Fiji is full of things such as inspecting a line of soldiers - which certainly hasn't got much to do with athletics. Everyone getting on the bandwaggon of achievement of one guy.  Where are the other disabled youth, men and women in the photo shoots?  Will this achievement mean more people with special needs will be giving good opportunities?
