VOLA TO IMPROVE TIME

Litiana Vola aims to improve on her time as she competes in the open girls 1500 metres at the 2019 Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Finals otherwise known as the Coca-Cola Games.

The Year 12 student of Cicia High School won gold in the 1500m open girls grade during the Maritime Zone at the ANZ Stadium, Suva yesterday.

This is the second year for the Naceva, Cicia native to compete at the Games and she is confident of improving her time. “After running the 1500m race I feel that I’m fit and ready for the challenge, even though I will be running against top athletes but I’m confident that I will do well.

“I first competed last year but this year I won’t be new to the environment and I’m ready to battle against the best athletes. “I’m calling on the people of Cicia to come out in numbers and support us.”

MOCE ATHLETES HERE TO LEARN

Moce Secondary School’s participation at the 2019 Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Finals is a way to expose their athletes and for them to feel the excitement of the Games.

This is the first time for the Lau-based to participate and head coach Kaiava Jokatama said their trip to Suva was made possible through the support of the parents.

“This year our aim is the exposure of our athletes who are new to this environment since most of them are coming to Suva for the first time,” he said.

“We are grateful to the parents for their financial support. Our budget was around $1500 and this was achieved through the parents and teachers support.”

Moce brought in four athletes to compete and Jokatama hopes that they qualify for the Fiji Finals as they compete in the Maritime Zone at the ANZ Stadium, Suva yesterday.

“Next year we’ll come back strong and improve on a few of our weaknesses that we will identify this year,” he added.
