The Fiji Table Tennis national team aim to get the best possible result at the Pacific Games next month in Papua New Guinea.

National coach Brett Clarke is happy with their preparations.

“I am very pleased with how things have been going so far as our athletes are working really hard,” Clarke said.

“Jun Su, who is a member of the China Olympic Committee, is working closely with our players overseeing their skills and speed.

“His assistance is important in our preparation to ensure that our players are properly trained and prepared.”

“We are aiming to be the best and I’m confident we can win some medals,” Clarke said.

However, regardless of whether the team wins a medal or not, Clarke said Fiji Table Tennis has a bright future.

“We have a young team, our youngest is Grace Yee who is only 13-years-old and that is a positive sign,” he said.

“From this, we know that we can develop and improve our players from a young age who and youth development is important.”

The Pacific Games will be held on July 4-18
