ONLY one month remains for the national men's bowls team to wrap up preparation for the World Bowls Championship in Australia.
The event is scheduled to start on November 24 and will run till December 9 in Adelaide.
Team coach Peter Thaggard said the main aim for this year was to better results in the other events and to claim the triples event.
He said Fiji had a good chance of winning the triples event as they were the top-ranked team in the Asia Pacific.
"Our national team is ranked second in the world triples competition and is the number one ranked team in the Asia Pacific ahead of Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia," Thaggard said.
Leading the charge for Fiji in the triples at this year's event will be Arun Kumar, Samuela Tui and Abdul Kalim. Kumar will also compete in the singles event while Tui, Kalim, Semesa Naiseruvati and David Aitcheson will compete in the fours and Naiseruvati and Aitcheson will also fly Fiji's flag in the pairs event.
"The four locally based players are doing their individual training but meet up in the weekend to train as a team while Kalim is in Cyprus competing in the Champion of Champions singles tournament," Thaggard said.
Meanwhile, the national women's team; made up of Litia Tikoisuva, Sala Gukivuli, Doreen O'Conner and debutants Sheryl Mar and Elisabeth Mocewai, has been given a wild card entry into the tournament after a country pulled out.
