He said the team had arrived safe­ly in Northern Marianas without any problems.

“The games village was opened on June 14 and the team attended to training schedules,” he said.

“Food is good here with some challenges; not too many options for vegetarians. However, we have spoken to the oraganising commit­tee on this.”

Tactical meeting for baseball and tennis was held yesterday, with ten­nis kicking off before the opening.

Team Fiji baseball will face Guam on Saturday at 4pm (Fiji Time) at Francisco “Tan Ko” M. Palacios Baseball Field.

“All the venues except triathlon is near to the games village, triathlon is on another island which they will fly after the opening ceremony on Saturday.”

Ballu added teamwork was wit­nessed mong other Pacific island teams, who steeped in to help them when needed

“It is good to see Fiji triathlon and Palau have been training together, lovely to see the collaboration be­tween Pacific nations,” he said.

“It was fantastic to see Team Fiji fully support our flag bearer Va­tunisolo Naibili given the highest honour anyone can be get.”
