Ratu Lalabalavu Memorial School (RLMS) and Koro High School are the new champions of the 2015 Maritime Zone. The school clinched the boys division with seven gold medals, three silver and one bronze.

Koro High came in second with five gold medals and two silver while Gau Secondary School finished third with four gold medals.

In the girls division, Koro won with 10 gold medals and one silver. RLMS came in second with eight gold medals, six silver and one bronze. Gau Secondary School came third with one gold medal and one silver.

Maritime Zone delegate Biu Colati said the meet was a success. “It went well. I think this year, athletes have more chances of qualifying for the Coca-Cola Games compared to previous years,” Colati said.

“What separates the maritime athletes from mainland students is that they’re naturally talented. They may not have the skills, but they are strong.”

Maritime, athletes and those from isolated rural areas will be assisted by Rotary Club of Suva and some corporate companies through donation of joggers and track shoes to help them in the Games on Friday and Saturday.

LDS Out To Do Better

W

ith three days left to the Coca-Cola Games, the Latter Day Saints (LDS) College athletes are preparing well under coach Malcolm Williams.

Williams, who recently joined the school, said preparation has changed a lot and the focus is now to get the athletes adjusted to a new way of training.

“For us, preparations are coming along slowly, there are lots of things that need to be changed like the mindset of the athletes from the old ways of training to the new style,” he said yesterday.

“We are putting these students through something they have never been through before, like learning to cope with pain, testing your limits and bettering yourselves.

“We need help our athletes to adapt to the current forms of training such as warm-ups. Things have changed completely from the 90s to what it is now.

“Our aim in this year’s Coke Games is to participate and do the best as we possibly can, any medals will do, no matter what colour.

This is the first year LDS has had a large number of athletes taking part.
