Nainima aims high

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, February 12, 2014

FORMER national beach volleyball rep Eroni Nainima has set his focus on securing a spot in the national volleyball team.

Nainima was in top form in last weekend's Western Rally helping his Nadi team to win the main title.

He said securing a spot in the national team would be difficult but he was ready to battle against the best players in the land to prove his worth.

Nainima will be leading the Nadi team for the Vanua Challenge in Suva next month.

"I had made my resolution on New Year's Day to be selected in the national volleyball team and I am working hard to fulfil my resolution," he said.

"I know there are many talented players also wanting to make the team and I am looking forward to battle against them in Suva."

Meanwhile, Nadi volleyball president Isikeli Banuve said the side had lifted its Vanua Challenge preparation to another level compared to their Western Rally win.

He said the win had laid the platform for his players when they challenge the volleyball giants in Suva.

"The Vanua Challenge will be much tougher compared to the Western Rally," said Banuve.

"We have set our target to improve from our last year's performance."
