Kevin Gosper, Mrs Lenoa & Friends at FASANOC Dinner
The FASANOC (Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee) and Fiji Women in Sports hosted a dinner or delegates from the Oceania region attending the ONOC (Oceania National Olympic Committee) Secretary General’s meeting.
Mr Kevin Gosper, President of Oceania National Olympic Committee and a Vice President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) attended the dinner.
Mr Gosper has been very supportive on women representation on NOCs.
Late 2007, the Women in Sport (WIS) Committee in Fiji, unanimously agreed that Mrs. Makarita Lenoa, the Fiji Karate Federation and the Oceania Karate Federation President, be nominated for the ‘IOC Women in Sport Trophy’ which is held every year.
It was also acknowledged that she received the Award despite Karate being a non-Olympic sport.
