Fiji has been kept out of next year's Commonwealth Games in India after the Commonwealth leaders meeting in Trinidad and Tobago rejected an appeal for Fiji to take part.
New Zealand Prime Minister John Key has been outspoken against letting Fiji play in the Games.
Vidhya Lakhan, the president of Fiji's Association of Sport and National Olympic Committee told Radio Australia he's disappointed to see Key take a lead role in swaying the decision of the Commonwealth leaders.
According to Radio Australia, John Key lobbied the leaders including the Indian Prime Minister to secure the defeat of the bid.
Lakhan says he's surprised that John Key would "stoop that low" and go and secure the support of the Indian Prime Minister.
He told Radio Australia it's not clear yet which leaders supported Fiji's bid.
Lakhan says Fiji will now go to the court of arbitration for support.
