Makereta Naulu is not only focusing on assisting Adi Cakobau School to defend the girl’s division title in this year’s Coca-Cola Games but also aims for a spot in the Commonwealth Games squad.

The 19-year-old who hails from Kubulau, Bua will bolster the girls from Waimanu after she won the 200metres and later an­chored her Lagakali House 4x400m senior girl’s relay team.

“I’m taking each game at a time,” she said.

“I will look at my results after this inter-house, build-up for the zone and then to the Fiji Finals. My aim is to keep improv­ing my results.”

She is aware of her competitors who will come in as under­dogs.

“All schools are preparing to do well and produce good re­sults. There will be athletes coming in as underdogs but I’ve just got to do my basics well,” she said.

“I’m also aiming for a spot for my first Commonwealth Games, it will be a great experience competing with the best athletes from around the world.”
