Ki ora, Talofa, Ma’lelei, Bula & Welcome to Season 09 Episode 12 of Breakfast Bites the FIJI & PACIFIC SPORTS NEWS PODCAST, by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika people’s sports news, on a sunny and bright Monday morning 15th April 2024.

Coming to you with tons of hanisi from the 180th meridian, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. 

In Super Netball in Australia

The Sunshine Coast Lightning are the Round One talking point after they delivered a slick 16-goal win against last season’s runners-up, the NSW Swifts 63-79, who many tipped to be premiers in 2024.

And in the second match of the day, the Vixens claimed their inaugural Melbourne derby against new cross-town rivals the Mavericks 61-68.

In UFC300

Brazil’s two-division champion – former UFC Middleweight Champion Alex Pereira defended his UFC Light Heavyweight title against Jamahal Hill of Chicago with “the greatest KO of all time” according to Joe Rogan, in UFC300 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas yesterday.

The five-round all-Chinese co-main event saw two-time women’s USF straw-weight Champion Weili Zhang beat Yan Xionan on points.

Also on the PPV card, Hawaii’s former featherweight champion Max Holloway destroyed Justin Gaethje with one second remaining in their Lightweight bout.



In SportsBiz

World Athletics, the governing body for track and field, will award US$50,000 to each gold medalist at the upcoming Summer Olympic Games in Paris as part of a US$2.4Million total prize pool covering 48 events.

The prize money will be extended to winners of silver and bronze medals at the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, dramatically reversing more than a century of history where most Olympic athletes were amateurs.

This also makes World Athletics the first international federation to offer Olympics prize money.

In rugby league

The Canberra Raiders nailed a 21-20 golden point win over the unlucky Gold Coast Titans.

Under-pressure South Sydney Head Coach Jason Demetriou expects to still be in the job next week against the Melbourne Storm after their bye round, despite the Bunnies 22-34 loss to the Cronulla Sharks on Saturday.

“Nobody has told me otherwise,” he told reporters, “So we’ll just turn up and see.”

Manly and the NZ Warriors played out the first draw of the 2024 NRL season, finishing deadlocked at 22 all in Auckland on Saturday.

At The Masters

Tiger Woods still draws the biggest gallery at Augusta, despite languishing 60th on the leader board.

Top-ranked Scottie Scheffler holds a one-shot lead heading into the final round, with Collin Morikawa just one stroke back after shooting a three-under 69 on Sunday to move ahead of Max Homa (-5), Ludvig Åberg (-4) and Bryson DeChambeau (-3) in the Top 5.

Other notable players, Ryan Fox, son of Grant is in 21st spot, cousin Tony Finau is in 37, Vijay Singh is 58th two spots ahead of Tiger.

Finally, only in America

Every decade or so, a new sports star streaks across the landscape, someone who’s able to not only attract hard-core sports viewers but casual ones eager to witness what all the fuss is about.

Think Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods or Patrick Mahomes. They just play the game differently. They do things you’ve never seen before. Win or lose, they’re ratings magnets.

That’s Caitlin Clark. 

Consider: ABC/ESPN’s 18.9 million average viewers for Iowa vs. South Carolina nearly doubled the record 9.9 million for last year’s game.

And that’s a wrap!
