Mata'utu, Wallis Island, November 6, 2012 – The Vanuatu women’s beach volleyball team were selected as the Pacific’s Outstanding Team of the Year at the 4th annual Pacific Sports Awards.

The awards were presented at the Pacific Games Council's annual General Assembly held on Wallis Island October 18 to 19.

“This is a huge achievement for Vanuatu and Volleyball in the Pacific,” said Debbie Masaufakalo, president of Vanuatu Volleyball.

Vanuatu’s Henriette Iatika and Miller Elwin have just won silver at the Women’s AVC Beach Volleyball Championship.
