Livai Maravou created the biggest upset of the 2014 Central Division Chow Games after winning the Under-14 Boys 100 metres final yesterday.

The Wailotua, Wainibuka lad was on cloud nine following his blue ribbon victory and thanked his coaches and parents for the support.

“I’d just like to thank everyone that has supported me, especially my coaches, my parents, my school, all my friends,” Maravou said.

“And God for the blessings in giving me the strength to train every day.

“This was my first time to compete in the Chow Games and the win is just the best. I’m very happy and I can’t express how much this really means to me.

“My parents have been talking about sending me to Nasinu Secondary School next year. But my coaches want to consider all the offers from other prominent schools. As for now I’m just going to enjoy my win.”

The Year Eight student of Davuilevu Methodist Primary School also took out the U14  200m final last Friday and managed to anchor the Tailevu South 4x100m relay team to a third place finish in the final. Meanwhile, teammate Jacqueline Suguta was named the Best Female Athlete after winning the U14  200m, getting silver in the U14 100m final and anchored the 4x100m relay team to a gold medal finish.

Overall, Tailevu South managed to finish third with 11 gold medals, 12 silver medals and 20 bronze medals.
