The presence of 19 staff members from the Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources made the difference in this year’s Coca-Cola Games at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.

The first seven field events on Day One were completed early and the staff used their measuring devices to ensure that all the distances were accurately measured.

“Our field events on day one were completed early which never happened before,” Colati said.
