July 9, 2018 5:03 pm
The Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s team will spend a week-long camp at Denver in Colorado ahead of this month’s World Cup.
Coach Iliesa Tanivula says the high altitude training in Colorado will best prepare the team before they head to San Francisco next Monday.
“We just have to acclimatize with the weather and the surrounding and environment. Couple of these girls and it’s going to be huge and it’s an honour and we just have to challenge ourselves and rise up to the occasion.”
The Fiji women’s side will play Spain in its opening world cup match on Saturday week.
Meanwhile, the Fiji men’s team is currently camping in Utah, USA and the 13 member squad will be named on the 18th of this month.
Fiji opens its campaign against the winner of Qualifying Match 7, either Japan or Uruguay Saturday week.
The Rugby 7s World Cup will be held in San Francisco from the 21st to the 23rd of this month.
