Imakulata Lequa won the first gold medal for Holy Cross College after jump­ing a distance of 4.92 metres yesterday.

Despite the financial diffi­culties they had faced in try­ing to participate at the Coke Games, the Taveuni-based school brought in 20 athletes.

Lequa said the school con­ducted fundraising drives to fund their trip to Viti Levu

“We sell curry chicken and other fundraising events to collect money so we could participate at this year’s Fiji Finals,” she said.

“I feel so happy winning this gold medal. I just want to thank the Lord for the bless­ing.

“I dedicate this win to my coach, families and friends.

“I would also like to ac­knowledge my parents for their support.

“The preparation I un­derwent to win this gold is worth all the sweat especial­ly waking up early, having a strict diet and a training pro­gramme to follow.”
