Alpine skier who gained recognition at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics as the only representative from Fiji.
He was a ski instructor in New Zealand; his benefactor to the 2002 Olympics was a retired Swiss businessman and founder of the Fiji Alpine Ski Association.
He became the first Pacific Islander to legitimately qualify for the Winter Olympics because of his athletic skills and not because of the wild cards process.
His mother was of Fijian descent, while his father was from New Zealand.
He and Fiji-born rugby player Joeli Vidiri were contemporaries.
