Being aggressive and having a competitive attitude saw Suva Grammar School’s Senirewa Cakacaka won a gold medal in the sub junior girl’s dis­cus event yesterday.

The Moce, Lau lass threw a distance of 23.76 metres fol­lowed by Joy Wise of Adi Ca­kobau School (23.63m) while Faith Kukusei of Jasper Wil­liams High School finished third (22.36m).

Cakacaka said being motivat­ed and to be aggressive made her push through the bars to achieve her goal.

“I knew I had the potential of winning gold but that strong competitive attitude in me made this possible,” she said.

“Despite the unfavourable weather condition I still man­aged to give my best. I thank my coach Jone Delai and my par­ents for always supporting me.

“My aim now is to go back and prepare myself well for next year and hopefully break the record in this event.”
