FIJI paddler Gary Volau was the best performer for the Taf'aga Outrigger Canoe Club during the New Zealand National Sprint outrigger paddling competition in Hamilton.

Volau was part of the 13-member Taf'aga team that took part in the competition this week in the under-14, U19, U23 and premier categories.

He competed in the final of the U23 V1 500 metres race, finishing seventh in a time of two minutes 45 seconds.

Team official Katerina Morris said the event was a good learning experience for the club.

She said this was the third year the club competed as guests against the top clubs in New Zealand.

"The men's team includes four Fiji reps from the 2013 Pacific Mini Games in Wallis and Futuna, while the women's team features the 2013 U19 V1 champion Theresa Avon," Morris said.

Competition ended yesterday.

Taf'aga Club: Guy Morris (Head coach), Management team: Katerina Morris, Raymond Inia, Mellony Inia, Rosarine Hesaie, Paddlers: Guy Morris, Paul Yaqona, Johji Wong, Naibuka Cakacaka, Marika Cakaulevu, Gary Volau, Katerina Morris, Theresa Avon, Krystelle Whippy, Ranadi Timote, Lupe Hesaie, Sylvia Hesaie, Lauryn Inia
