Lekutu Secondary School 1500m Open girls champion Vika Tulomana was grateful after winning gold at the ANZ Stadium in Suva yesterday.

“When I came to Suva I knew I was going to win gold medal,” Tulomana said.

“It was not only about physical preparation that boosted me.

“I have morning devotions with my team and I always ask God to help me win this gold medal.”

The Nawailevu, Lekutu, Bua lass ran a time of 5 mins and finished ahead of  Losala Turaga of Jasper Williams, who clocked 5:01min, and Silivia Vusevuse of Kadavu Provincial School finished third with a time of 5:13min.

The Bua lass first participated in the Coca-Cola Games last year and finished sixth.

“I first came to Suva last year competed and finished in sixth place and this year I promised myself to win gold,” Tulomana said.

“I knew it’s not going to be easy beating Jasper Williams athlete, but as we came through the last 400m I already knew that the gold medal was going to Lekutu Secondary.

“I want to thank my family and villages of Nawailevu for their support and also the old scholars of Lekutu.”
