Tomasi Seru believes that a bigger challenge awaits him in the Tailevu Zone and later the Coca-Cola Games in April.

The Ketei, Totoya, Lau native won the sub junior boys javelin event for his Bau House during the Queen Victoria School inter-house competition at the Nukuvuto ground yesterday.

Seru’s no throw in his first attempt motivat­ed him to throw his best of 33.86 metres. The Year Nine student knows the extra work he needs to put in to build-up his performance.

“This is my first year to participate in the Coca-Cola Games and I know the competi­tion will be tough starting from the Tailevu zone right up to the Coke games,” he said.

“There are many good throwers around the country but I will prepare myself accord­ingly and ready for any challenge. It will be dedication and sacrifice that will assist me to achieve my goal.”

The 13-year-old stood firm after failing in his first attempt.

“After getting a no throw in my first at­tempt, I kept on believing and reminded my­self that I will get this gold medal. I thank God for his guidance and for giving me this win,” he added.
