Twelve records were recorded in Day One of the 2014 Western Chow Games at Govind Park in Ba yesterday.

The games, as anticipated, started off with a blast with defending champions Lautoka doing the hard yards to defend their title.

While the boys’ category was led by Nadroga and contested closely by Lautoka, the girls category was dominated by Lautoka.

Games media officer, Tirani Uluikauvadra says  the contest of winning the most gold medals has resulted in 12 records broken.

“The winner of the event will be decided with the most gold medals wins after Lautoka toppled 2012 champions Nadroga last year,”he said.

“And this is the beauty of the Western Chow Games as athletes make new mark every year.”

Meanwhile, perseverance, hard work and dedication paid off with a gold medal for Lautoka’s Seveci Matanitobua after breaking the boys U14 grade 1500 metres race, finishing at a time of 4.44 minutes.

The Lewa Sewa goalkeeper and Ba athlete, Lusiana Ratulevu also scooped a gold medal in the Girls U13 grade 400m final.
