Bowls to send best

BOWLS Fiji will be sending a strong contingent to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow with an aim to better its performance from the previous outing at the Melbourne Games in 2006.

During the Melbourne Games, Fiji reached the quarter-finals of the men's singles, men's pairs and women's singles events.

The players to represent Fiji have been chosen and the names have been forwarded to the selection justification committee for endorsement.

Bowls Fiji secretary Abdul Kalim said the names would be announced after approval was given by the selection justification committee.

Kalim said their aim was to better their performance and target the medals at stake.

"The final preparations will be very important because there isn't much time left," he said.

In 2006, Keshwa Gounder and Curtis Mar reached the men's pairs quarter-finals losing to Australia 5-8, 3-12. In the men's singles quarter-finals, Caucau Turagabeci lost to Ryan Bester of Canada 7-7, 4-8. In the women's singles quarter-finals, Litia Tikoisuva lost to Elisabeth Morgan of Wales 10-10, 2-11.

The bowls competition will take place at the picturesque Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls Centre.
