Olympic gold medallist Semi Kunatani wants to be part of the Fiji Airways Fijian 7s Gareth Baber team for the 2020 Olympic Games in Japan.

The Harlequins flanker revealed his intention for a second shot at the Olympics after gruelling session at the Sigatoka sand dunes on Friday.

He’s was a member of the Ben Ryan-coached team that won the 7s rugby gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

“It’s also one of my plans to be part of the 7s team for the Olympic Games next year,” he said.

“But it’s up to the officials if they give us the opportunity. The opportunity to play rugby at an international level such as Olympic Games only comes once.

“While I am still young I have to make use of every opportunity that comes my way.”
