It is not all about winning for the Tailevu South Athletics Association as their main aim in this year’s FMF Chow Games to develop young athletes.

Association’s president Faga Savukione was proud of Tailevu’s performance yesterday.

“We’ve done really well regardless of the fact that most of our schools did not join us this year,” Savukione said.

“We are lucky we had ample time to prepare  and I know that the students did the best they could.”

The objectives set out for Tailevu South was for their athletes to improve on what they have learnt and what they can better.

“It’s not very often these students get to compete in such an event because for most of these students it’s their first time.

“It’s a good platform for the young athletes to develop their skills and see where they stand and build up more confidence especially when they move up to secondary level.”

The eight schools representing Tailevu South are Davuilevu Methodist, Banivalu Primary, Toga District, Nuku District, Vunimono Sanatan, Nausori Primary and Navuakece Primary.
