Forty-four (44) records were broken during the second day of the Western Chow Games at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka yesterday. The champion Team Lautoka broke four of those records.

Team Lautoka also retained the overall title. They topped the medal count with 70 medals while Nadroga came in second with 67 while Navosa were in third spot with 47.

In the boy’s category, Lautoka won with 16 gold medals, 10 silver, 11 bronze. In second place was Nadroga with 11 gold, 12 silver and 14 bronze followed by Ra with 11 gold, 8 silver and 4 bronze

In the girl’s division, Nadroga claimed the overall title with 12 gold medals, 11 silver and 7 bronze, in second place was Navosa with 12 gold, 9 silver, 12 bronze while Lautoka came in third with 9 gold, 9 silver and 15 bronze.

Lautoka Primary School Athletics Association president Johnson Lee said, it is always special to defend the title since it is always hard.

“But since we have done it, we feel good and happy with the outcome,” he said.

“Although we had one-week of training for this event, it was the commitment made by the teachers and teamwork that enabled the victory.”

Team Nadroga head coach Niko Kororua said: “The competition seems to get tougher every year; although we faced some hurdles this did not stop us from competing. I think it’s a bonus for the girls and the Nadroga team as a whole.”
