It was a dream come true for Solomone Kaulotukiono of Nadogo Secondary School to win a gold medal in the interme­diate boy’s discus event during Day 1 of the Coca-Cola Games.

Kaulotukiono threw a distance of 43.94m to beat Maximus Le­stro of Lelean Memorial School second (43.17m) while Iosefo Tagivetaua of Marist Broth­ers High School was third with 41.93m.

The 17-year-old who hails from Yadrana in Lakeba, Lau was emotional after winning his first ever gold medal.

“I’m really grateful for the win today,” Kaulotukiono said

“I never thought I would be able to win gold and this wouldn’t been possible without the bless­ing from the Almighty God.

“The competition in this event was quite tough as I had to compete against the best ath­letes from various schools in Fiji.

“But, nevertheless I will cher­ish my achievement today and would like to dedicate the win to all my loved ones back at home in Vanua Levu who have been supporting me through­out.”

The intermediate boys dis­cus record of 49.35m by Josua Serukilagi of Queen Victoria School remains intact.
