Guam swimmers strive for success at Pacific Games

The team won a combined total of 55 medals, according to the website

That represents more than half of Guam's total medal count of 81. Swimmers also swept the Outstanding Male and Female Athlete of the Games awards, which were given to Pilar Shimizu (eight gold) and Jagger Stephens (11 gold).

With that type of success, Guam head coach Don San Agustin will be pushing the team to do as well or even better at the Pacific Games.

Fiji Pearls want to remain on top ahead of the PG in PNG

Of the nine netball competitions since the start of the Pacific Games Fiji had won six and have remained unbeaten since 1995.

In 2011, netball was not contested so the sport makes a comeback after a lapse of eight years to the Pacific Games.

For the Pearls, the Pacific Games also provide an opportunity to test themselves as they build up for the Netball World Cup.

Vice-captain Maria Lutua said Fiji was going for gold.
