Former Pacific sprint king Banuve Tabakaucoro’s younger brother Joseva set a new intermediate boys 200 metres record in the Suva Zone Two meet at the ANZ Stadium, yesterday.

The Marist Brothers School student clocked a time of 21:63 seconds beating the old record of 22:03, which was set in 2001.

Joseva said he feels no pressure to perform when it comes to athletics.

“I know when it comes to running, a lot of people expect me to do well like my brother or do even better than him,” he said.

“But I have talked to my brother and I have always asked how he actually does it and he has told me that training hard and being dedicated is what will help me reach my goal.

“I don’t need to worry about breaking records or beating my brother’s times, he told me not to worry about that, just as long as I train hard and be committed, the results I want will follow.

“So every time I’m prepared to run on the track, beating any records is the last thing on my mind, I’m cool and I don’t feel any pressure to prove myself to anyone.”

Also winning his intermediate boys 100m, Joseva said he is ready for the Coke Games.

“Now I’m excited about the upcoming Coke Games and I know it will be the place where everything we have worked for really counts. Every year it gets tough but I am prepared for the challenges ahead.”
