Nasinu High School Senior boy’s trump card Peniasi Navukula aims to set a new personal best and win a medal of any colour in this year’s Coca-Cola games which begins at the ANZ Stadium tomorrow.

Navukula won gold in the senior boys 200m during the Suva Zone One competition with a time of 22.04 sec and is determined for another positive performance in this week’s Fiji finals.

The year 12 student first competed at the Coke games from year 9 when he was attending Sila Central High School running the 400m event but has yet to win a medal.  Now under the guidance of former blue ribbon champion John Lum Kon the Namuka, Nakelo, native is positive for a top three finish.

“I started competing in the Coca-Cola games when I was in Sila Central High School since form 3 to five (Year 9-11) and I have never won any medal.

“This year looking at my results during Suva Zone One, I’m confident for a good outing and hope to improve my time,” Navukula said.

“I have noticed the change in training this year,  I’m fortunate to have a coach like John Lum Kon.

“His coaching style is different compared to what I experienced when I was in Sila.

“I’m confident to say that I’m physically, mentally and spiritually prepared for the games.”

The 18-year-old was also part of the Nasinu Secondary School rugby league U19 team that lost to Navosa Central 8-16 last Saturday at Lawaqa Park.
