Fiji's Mata dance group will carry the Pacific's hopes when they head to the World Hip Hop Championships in the United States this week.

The Fijians qualified for the event for the first time after taking out the Pacific title at April's International hiphop competition in Auckland.

Director Tevita Tobeyaweni says the group is ready for the most intense week of their lives in Arizona when they compete against 80 crews from around the world from 5 August.

He told Christine Rovoi it hasn't been an easy journey for the crew but this is their one chance to prove themselves on the world stage.
