Queen Victoria School sprinter Ilaitia Waqairadovu is adamant of a golden result in the senior boys’ 200 metres final today.

Following his disqualification in the 100 metres blue ribbon event during the Tailevu Zone, the Sawaieke, Gau native told SUNsports yesterday that he believes it was God’s plan and a motivational factor for him to win the 200m final.

Waqa clocked the fastest time in the senior boys 200m heats with a time of 21.77s and expects a tough challenge from his school mate Jim Colasau who clocked the second fastest time of 22.60s and Marist Brothers High School’s Keasi Naidroka who clocked 22.71s in the heats.

“I thank the Lord for guiding me since the beginning of the year, eventhough I got disqualified in the blue ribbon event from the zone I’ve been preparing for the 200m event. I know God will provide as I always believe in him and he is the source of my strength and victory.”

Waqa thanked the teachers, old boys, family members and friends for their support.

“Even though I will not run the 100 metres but I will wait for my other brothers in the 200 metres final and yes I’m confident of doing well.”
