Ulamila Cirikisuva, 15, is ready for the Oceania Weightlifting Championship in Suva next week.

The Form four student of St Joseph Secondary School is looking forward to her first international competition.

“I started weightlifting in February last year,” she said.

“I wanted to take part in powerlifting but it was quite hard and weightlifting was much easier.

The Lakeba native from Lau is thankful for the opportunity to represent the country.

“It feels awesome and exciting and my coaches are really good. For me personally it’s an honour, I’m scared but ready for it,” she said.

Cirikisuva thanked her family, coaches and teammates for the encouragement and hope to make everyone proud.

Coach Joe Vueti will name a 15-member squad for the championship which will be held at the Vodafone Arena from Tuesday.
