The Fiji weightlifting team has rated Nauru as their toughest opponent when the competition for the Mini Games starts today.

Manueli Tulo and Joe Vueti will take part in their respective weight category.

Tulo is in the 56kg category and will be the favourite against 4 other competitors from Kiribati, Tonga, Nauru and Tuvalu.

The 18 year old who was named last year's Male Athlete of the Year said that he knows what to expect as he tries to do Fiji proud in his first outing in the Mini Games.
