Fiji Weightlifter and Pacific Mini Games bronze medalist Taniela Rainibogi is ready to put his preparation in action at the Australia International Open ahead of the Commonwealth Games in April.
The 20-year-old from Ovalau says under the leadership of Coach Joe Vueti he has been able to discover his true talent and compete at the elite level.
“He’s a former weightlifter and has experienced in the sport. The training program he gives us is pretty tough and we just have to go with it. I’m glad I have a coach like him.”
Rainibogi will be accompanied by Vueti, Eileen Cikamatana, Apolonia Vaivai, Manueli Tulo, Taniela Rainibogi and Poama Qaqa.
The Australian Open will see more than 100 athletes take part from seven Oceania Countries competing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
