Flexing for a medal

THE Fiji bodybuilding team is hoping to win at least two medals during the South Pacific Bodybuilding Championship which started last night in Tonga.

The national side is represented by Sefanaia Cakautini, Jekesoni Yanuyanudua and Lewaitasi Biliwaqa who are competing in the junior grade of the championship.

The team arrived in Tonga on Tuesday.

"The boys are training well ahead of the championship. They are looking forward to taking part in the competition," team manager John Lee said.

"This championship is good exposure and experience for them."

Lee said other bodybuilders that were part of the squad pulled out after failing to secure leave from work.

"It would have been good to have the experienced bodybuilders representing us but unfortunately they couldn't get time off.

"Despite that, we are hoping to win at least two medals between gold and bronze in the championship."

Bodybuilders from Tonga, Niue, the Cook Islands, PNG, the Solomon Islands, Fiji and New Zealand (Tongans) are taking part in the championship.
