“First time we have been nominated to attend the Olympic Games in Solomons, that’s something like camping. So the camping will be for preparing the athletes – the how and what to do while they are in the Olympics if they qualify for the Olympics so that’s what’s going on right now for their preparations.”

He adds this is a step closer to the four athletes’ Olympic dream.

The team of four will set off for the Solomon Islands on Sunday.
