New Zealand's sole Judo representative at the London Olympics, Moira de Villiers, says she's feeling fit and ready, and is confident of a top ten finish.

De Viliers has been in Europe for the past four weeks preparing for the Games, spending two of those weeks at a training camp in Spain, where she faced nine of her potential Olympic oponents.

Her coach, Jason Koster, says it was a big confidence booster for de Villiers, who performed better than expected.

Jason Koster says de Villiers has a small amount of weight to lose before the competition begins next Wednesday.

She will compete in the under-70kg division.
