The Australian Masters Games underway in the Victorian city of Geelong are for people who love their sport.

The Masters Games is a sporting competition with a minimum age requirement for all participants - the exact age is different for every sport but it is usually around 30 years.

One team making a repeat appearance at the Australian Masters Games is the Ariku Bay Sharks from Papua New Guinea - they're unbeaten after eight games in the touch rugby competition... and are looking at a gold medal.
