Today the athletes had another round of training in the morning at Yat Sen and later a session for the kata competitors at Albert Park.

Almost all the other countries are here now and as usual the Australians probably have the largest contingent. New Zealand and New Caledonia have also arrived. Unfortunately, our smaller Melanesian brothers have not sent any athletes.

Another member of our contingent, Sensei Mark Vele, also arrived today.

Everyone is psyched up and ready for tomorrow. Competition starts around 8:30am at the Vodafone arena and a wantok we met today has promised to come and give our guys some support.

Sapos ol wantok stap nambaot long Suva, kam na sapotim ol brata na susa blong yupla tumora.
