Pita Taufatofua – an athlete representing Tonga in judo for years has called on Government to reconsider its decision to withdraw as host of the 2019 games.

He said it is important that we do not focus on what we don’t have but we focus on what Tongans have, to promote our nation when hosting the Games.

Taufatofua said Tongans should stand up and help each other to ensure that the Government can host the Games and let’s not lose our chance.

He added, if the Greek started the Olympic Games with only stones and rocks – WHY CAN’T TONGA.

Taufatofua stole hearts of millions when leading Team Tonga in the Olympic Games in Brazil – when he was oiled up and wearing a traditional Tongan attire

The first call made by a Tongan overseas based Sports star for government to reconsider its stance on the 2019 sports is Dame Valerie Adams Olympic Shotput Gold medalist.
