Josua Vici, 22, is the fittest player in the Fijian national 7s squad.

Vici scored the highest score of 22 in the yo-yo test and the winger is banking on his fitness to pull him through when the 13 players for the Rio Olympic Games is announced  next Friday.

“Leone Nakarawa achieved 18 and a half and I think he will hit 20 before the time comes,”national 7s coach Ben Ryan said.

“But currently Josua Vici has the highest yo-yo.”

Vici explains: “I’ve been training hard right from the start of camp until now. I’ve been scoring the highest yo-yo test competing with overseas based- players.

“It’s something that keeps me motivated.”

Vici aims to prove he has the competitive edge over big names like Samisoni Viriviri, Josua Tuisova and Savenaca Rawaca.

The Niudua, Naceva, Kadavu native knows the task is getting tough every day.

“Ben has reminded me on improving my defence and I know that I’m improving.”
