THE Fiji men's beach volleyball team has prepared itself well for the Pacific Mini Games.
The Apenisa Saukuru-coached side is anticipating hot and humid conditions in Wallis and Futuna.
The national side, which has the services of Epeli Ratabacaca and Qilu Elliot, wrapped up preparations yesterday and will leave the country for the games today.
The side will compete in the beach volleyball event from Tuesday.
"The players have trained on rainy, hot and sunny days on the beach and also indoor to prepare for the games," Saukuru said.
"The preparations have been good and we are hoping to get an opportunity to test the venue to acclimatise to the conditions in Wallis and Futuna."
Fiji won the gold medal at the Pacific Games in 2011.
The team then had the services of Waisake Raratabu and Waisale Suka.
Saukuru said winning the gold medal was the major focus at the PMG this year.
"This is the first time the men's competition has been included in the Mini Games and we are looking forward to that.
"We are aiming for gold and we will do our best to achieve that."
