It was raining gold medals at the Pacific Games on Saturday for Fiji and French Polynesia in rugby sevens, basketball and volleyball team events.
Playing in wet and steamy conditions Fiji took out double gold in the men's and women's 7s while Tahiti accomplished the same feat in volleyball.
In the men's sevens, Fiji beat rivals Samoa 19-5 and the Fiji women defeated Papua New Guinea 17-7.
Fiji men's captain Suliano Volivolituevei led from the front scoring the teams first try.
He said he told his team to stay calm going into the match.
"I told the boys when we arrived here in Solomon Islands, 'we came here we mean business, we came here to defend the gold medal'. I told the boys,'never panic, never lose hope, we are going to win this tournament tonight'," Volivotuevei said.
Fiji women's captain Mereula Torooti thanked fans back home and around the world in vosa vaka viti.
Fiji women's coach Jim Volavola was beaming with pride and saluted his players.
"It means a lot to these young, beautiful ladies, it means a lot," Volavola said.
"I take my hat off to them. They were fighting till the end. I take my hat off to these young girls."
It didn't seem to be all about winning though as silver medallists PNG and bronze medalists Wallis and Futuna huddled together for a group photo.
Wallis and Futuna's Teani Feleu said it was a challenge just getting a team together so finishing on the podium was extra special.
"It means everything it's the first time we out a team together to play in the Pacific Games for the sevens tournament, so it just means everything," Feleu siad.
"We did it for our island, our small island, no one knew us so yeah its just a perfect night."
But the big upset was in basketball where the Fiji men dethroned two-time Pacific champions Guam by 51 points to 47.
Guam captain and veteran basketballer Tai Wesley said this was a tough one to take but had this message for the fans.
"You know we get knocked down in life, in basketball it doesn't always go your way. But we will get back up, we will get better, we will come back," Wesley said.
For a good chunk of the fourth quarter Fiji was able to defend a three-point lead and even extend it by one just before the buzzer.
Guam coach EJ Calvo said his men missed some crucial shots but he hopes they use the loss as fuel for future competitions.
"On a night like this where its one game for it all if you don't make shots in the fourth quarter its going to be tough to expect a gold medal," Calvo said.
"If anything I know the team will never forget this moment and will work even harder to get back here once again and next time secure the gold."
Fiji's captain Marques Whippy was emotional after the match and dedicated the win to his late uncle Michael.
"First time I put on the jersey, I was 15-years-old and he was the coach and I played today this was for him," Whippy said.
"You know all of us have our reasons for Fiji and Fiji is a rugby country but hopefully this win will put basketball up there with rugby somehow," he said.
Mirroring Fiji's exploits French Polynesia bagged the double gold in Volleyball with the men defeating Papua New Guinea in straight sets and the women beating Cook Islands by three sets to one.
In the women's basketball finals it was again Tahiti and the Cook Islands squaring off with the French Polynesians coming away with the win 53-46 to complete their triple gold.

Fiji and Tahiti's achievements on Saturday push the hosts Solomon Islands out of the top five in the medal standings.
