COMPETITION is expected to be tough among the 12 participating teams at today's Sigatoka Bilibili Race.

Bilibili Race chairman Jacob Pau'u said after all the hard work during preparations for the annual event, it was all down to business today.

Pau'u said this year's competition was expected to be tougher than last year as all 12 teams had been training hard in the past few months.

"Yes, everyone has been looking forward to this day and now it's here and I expect all teams to come with their best," Pau'u said.

"While we have the usual teams returning to this year's competition, we have a new entrant in South Seas Cruises who will be competing for the first time."

Pau'u said the one-day event would be opened by the Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Iowane Naivalurua and closed by InterContinental Resort general manager Scott Williams.

Pau'u says they expect good weather during competition today and is inviting all hotel workers, their families and the people of Nadroga/Navosa to come down to Sigatoka and enjoy the Fiji Day holiday watching great competitions between the 12 participating teams.

The annual event will take place at the Sigatoka River.

Apart from hotels and companies associated with the tourism industry in the Coral Coast area, two teams from the Holiday Inn and the University of the South Pacific will be flying the capital city's flag in what is expected to be a fun-filled one-day event. The competition will start with a fun run from Hideaway Hotel to Sigatoka Town.
