Linda Pulsan is the Pacific Games champion in the 72kg women's powerlifting event.
She will be defending her title this afternoon at the PNG Power Dome (SJGS Indoor Complex).
Pulsan told Loop PNG in the morning that she does not feel any pressure and will let her lifting do the talking.
Speaking in Tok Pisin, Pulsan added that she will try her best to defend her gold.
Meanwhile, Pulsan said, she felt the nerves of carrying the country's flag, but those disappeared when entering the ceremony arena.
