Other information
FIJI TO AUSTRALIA
In February 2019 she was awarded permanent residency status in Australia. She intends to compete for Australia in international competition when she becomes eligible in 2021. The move from Fiji was the result of a lengthy dispute over coaching with Weightlifting Fiji. "The Commonwealth Games in 2022, the world championships - I've got the whole world in front of me. I'm still young and I still have a long way to go and a big ladder to climb up so no matter how long, if I miss this Olympics [Tokyo 2020] there's a next one in 2024 - it's not like it's the end of the world where I'll miss everything."
