Ballantine Memorial School (BMS) bagged their first gold in the 3000 metre Open grade at the ANZ Stadium in Suva yesterday.

Meki Maria retained her title clocking 12:15:64 minutes ahead of Raijeli Tale of Sacred Heart College (12:25:53) while Ateca Monika of Namosi Secondary School third (12:53:28).

BMS principal Mitieli Ralesi said with one gold medal in the bag, they are aiming for 17 more in the zone as they look to retain their title in the girls division.

“The girls are fully prepared and the first gold medal has really motivated our athletes,” Ralesi said.

“We are looking forward to a really good competition and we are targeting 18 gold medals and I am confident the girls can do it.

“We have 67 athletes in total and all of them are hungry for a win. They have all trained really hard and we are hoping that will show on the day.

“We know that it will not be easy, every year the zone gets tougher and every athlete needs to prove themselves that they are the best if they want to compete in the Coke Games.

The Suva Zone One resumes today at  8.30am at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.
