Susuico, 35, captained Guam’s team that won the first Pacific Games 3×3 gold medal in Apia in Samoa and they beat Fiji 20-18 in the final. The sport is due to make its Olympic debut at the re-arranged Games in The Tokyo next year.
“The goal is to establish ourselves as true contenders in the region,” said Susuico.
And that will start with the community and developing our youth, men’s and women’s programmers. The potential is there. We just have to keep moving forward. Bringing more education about the game of 3×3 to the sports community here and creating a positive atmosphere for our athletes.
“I have been blessed enough to have played in international competitions across the world and have seen the talent and the gameplay from all different counties,” Susuico said.
Every county has their style of play. And I know Guam will evolve with time and create our ways to succeed in 3×3. I could see other countries supporting their players and federations. I would like to see that kind of support from our Government as well. Programmed-wise, I would like to see more venues to play the sport. Also, support for our national programmed to travel, compete and express ourselves through sport. Susuico hopes to begin developing grassroots programmed for the sport in Guam.
“It is an honour to be able to be in a position to change the game of basketball here in Guam for the positive,” he said.
By establishing the foundation of what works for us in the game of 3×3 Basketball. We can develop and evolve into where we want to see our players, standing on the podium.
