Tell me something about Guam...
Well, first and foremost, it is a beautiful place... very mellow and relaxing, not so busy and fast paced like other places.

You must be really enjoying this Auckland weather?
It is a lot different. We only have one season in Guam and that's summer, compared to here where it's cold. We're not used to dressing with extra clothing like this every day. They did warn us not to get sick.

Where is Guam?
We are somewhat near Hawaii... it is about a 3-hour flight to Japan. According to the other teams, we traveled the furthest to get there, almost a day.

You were well beaten by Australia, but the wins over American Samoa and Tahiti must make you feel better.
We feel a lot better. I think we have regrouped after the win over Am Samoa.

Both the Guam teams seem much shorter than their opposition ... are you conscious of this?
Yes, but we still believe we can win ... it's all in our minds and our hearts. We train twice as hard because we lack the height. Conditioning is one of our biggest factors and we rely on our speed.
