Marica Korovulavula won the U12 girls 200m last year and is looking forward to win gold again in the U13 grade

 

It will be a fight for the Under-13 girls 200metres title in this year’s Divisional FMF Chow Games which is from November 18-19 at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.

Veiuto Primary School student Marica Korovulavula won the U12 girls 200m last year and is looking forward to win gold again in the U13 grade.

But that will not come easy as she is going up against her best friend and rival Helen Cecere of Suva One who is also running in the 200m this year.

The pair last ran together in 2014 where Cecere took out the gold medal, this year however, Korovulavula will not settle for second place again.

“I have been working really hard during training because I want to be consistent in my running, I won this event last year and I want to do that again,” Korovulavula said.

“It won’t be easy this year because Helen will be running as well and we last ran together in 2014 where she won gold but I want to win gold this year.

“I am really excited and looking forward to next week because this game is build up for me, I want to be Fiji’s fastest woman.”

The 13-year-old from Mataso in Kadavu is a happy that Veiuto Primary School will be representing themselves during the Games.

“I have seen a lot of talents in our school come out now that we are representing ourselves and that is really good.

“This is a good thing for our school and also for the athletes.”
