The Motusa, Rotuma native clocked 10.9 seconds in the senior boys 100m and 22s in the 200 me­tres.

Lemeki told SUNsports that he still can do better.

“I need to train hard and be more focused in my preparation,” he said.

“However, my performance at the inter-house is a lot better. I feel stronger and fitter which is a posi­tive sign. I wanted to improve and I’m happy because I did just that.

“I need to work on my finishing because this is important and I will need to perfect it before the Coke Games.”

The Year 12 student is working to­wards winning a gold medal at the Fiji Finals.

“I’m expecting strong competi­tion from athletes of other schools. “Through God, nothing is impossi­ble and I would be able to achieve my goal with the assistance from my coach and also my dedication towards my training.”

Lemeki said he is on a strict diet.

“A lot of sacrifice is being made towards my preparation to Fiji Fi­nals. I’m following a proper train­ing programme and diet which helps to get the best out me and pre­pare me in the best possible way.”
