The first ever school to be represented at the Central Division FMF Chow Games lead the girls division yesterday.

After day one, Veiuto Primary School are in control with 7 gold, 3 silver and 2 bronze medals.

Coach Owen Ratumaikoro said they would maintain their focus on the competition today.

“We want to expose more athletes in the competition and we are very proud of them,”he said.

“Before the competition we thought our girls had a chance and we are thankful but it’s not over yet.”

Ratumaikoro hopes other schools will consider following the lead taken by VPS as it would be better for the athletes.

“Other teachers are commenting on how easy it was for us to get ourselves organised and I’m hoping Suva schools will get in next year and do likewise so that we can have a wide base for selection when we compete in the nationals again.”
