Olympic champions Fiji have claimed the Canada Sevens after prevailing over Kenya in a tense final to close in on South Africa at the top of the overall standings.

The two nations were locked up at 12-12 at the break before the experienced Fijians pulled away in the second half, scoring three unanswered tries to win 31-12 in Vancouver - their second triumph from the past three events.

The runner-up position was Kenya's best finish in this year's Sevens competition and the first time they had won a medal.
