Josefa Tabakaucoro aims to stop the clock at 21 seconds in the Intermediate boys 200m event in the 2017 Coca-Cola Games on April 20-22 at the ANZ Stadium.

The Bau,Tailevu native and the younger brother of Pacific sprint champion Banuve Tabakaucoro clocked 22.5sec during the Marist Brothers’ High School inter-house meet yesterday and believe there is more work to be done.

“My preparation is fairly on track as I’m also trying to qualify for the Commonwealth Youth Games in Bahamas in June.

“I’m targeting to run 21seconds in the 200m and I’ve been working hard for this waking up early doing gym sessions and also in the afternoon. It’s a struggle but those are the plans I need to do to become a top athlete,” Tabakaucoro said.

The 17 year old will be bolstering the boys from Kaunikuila in the intermediate boys sprint events but is anticipating a tough competition from other schools.

“Everybody is coming to win at the Coke Games and I that’s why I’m working hard.

“I want to thank my family for their support,” he added.

“I will see what God has for me but I also want to become Fiji’s sprint king like Banuve.”
