Apart from Leslie Copeland in the spear event, Fiji has not had a competitive shot putter and or discus thrower since Sikipio Fihaki at the 2003 south pacific Games in Suva. One could safely say that Fiji has had a drought of competitive shot putters and discus throwers till Musatafa Fall putted his way into the national team claiming a 3rd place finish at the 2015 south pacific games in Papua New Guinea with a throw of 15.78m to set a new National Record. At the 2016 Melanesian Athletics Championships, Fall managed to win gold in the shot put and hurled the discus to a new personal best of 50.28m and beat 2016 No. 1 Pacific Ranked Debono of Papua New Guinea. This was to be Fall’s 3rd competitive competition all as Setareki Matau (team mate) led the 2016 Fiji ranking in the discus and Solomone Qisavola (team mate) led the 2016 Fiji ranking in the shot put in his (Fall) absence. Fall is definitely one of Fiji’s most talented throwers as he has stamped his mark in the top 10 all-time throwers in Fiji where he sits as No. 1 in the shot put with his personal best of 17.00m and No. 2 in the discus behind Mesulame Rakuro.
