Suva Zone Two long-distance hopefuls Olini Seru and Angeline Soso will be looking to make the most of their final year in primary school.
This is when they compete in the 2014 Central Division Chow Games at the ANZ Stadium on Friday and Saturday.

The St Agnes Primary School duo were excited about competing and hoped to branch out from their netball and soccer roots.

“It’s been really tough but we’re just so thankful to have made it through and we’re really looking forward to compete,”Soso said.

“This will be my first time as I’ve always played netball so it’s a challenge. We just really hope to do our best.”
Seru aims to bow out a winner.

“She was in the netball team and I was in the school soccer team so this is an interesting change for us but one we’re enjoying. This will be my fourth time competing in athletics as I’ve competed before in the 400m and even 1500m,” Seru said.

The duo earned their places after Seru won the Under-14 800m final at the Suva Zone Two meet while Soso was second.
Meanwhile, Suva Zone Two president Nasoni Tuinaceva said they were focusing strictly on their own camp.

“This year it’s all about focusing on our own team. We have our own agenda to work on and we don’t want to get distracted worrying about other districts,” Tuinaceva said.

“On paper, Suva Zone One is the stronger team. They have more powerhouse schools while we just have Veiuto and Saint Agnes but we won’t let that be an issue. We’re targeting the girls division because we’ve got a pretty strong group of female athletes,” he said.

“We’re not just concentrating on tracks but are working on our field events as well. So Suva One is definitely our biggest rival but we’re not taking away anything from the other districts. Suva has never had strong long distance runners and this is where other districts win.”
