DEFENDING Coca-Cola Games girls champion Adi Cakobau School will be fighting hard to be in the standard they were in when they last won the title.

According to coach Tony Raboiliku, the long break caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the girls’ fitness.

However, Raboiliku is adamant the girls would perform to the best of their ability next week.

“For us at ACS, it’s a huge challenge to get back to the standard we were in the last time we won the games title,” he said.

“This year has been the toughest from all the past years, the long break that we had and there was no physical activities allowed so it was a big setback for all the athletes.

That is our biggest challenge; we cannot really say that we are not doing anything, we are defending the champion and our objective is to defend our title.”

He also added the athletes have been without training for more than one year and they really need to work on that if they want to come back up.
