Queen Victoria School have set their sights on making a comeback in this year’s Coca-Cola Games.

QVS assistant principal and meet manager Dan Domoni said yesterday the traditional champions Ratu Kadavulevu School, Suva Grammar School, Natabua High School and Marist Brother High School are their top contenders.

Domoni said they were not happy with the school’s performance for the last three years.

“Last year alone the school won one gold medal,” the former Navosa rugby captain said.

“We also want to be included alongside the traditional champions.

“So this year we are trying to refocus on athletics since we have been doing well in other sports.

“We’ve been away from athletics for quite some time and we’ve decided this year to come back to the national stadium and gauge our athletes well by running on the actual arena.”

Domoni said this was an indicator that QVS was not doing well in school in terms of preparation.

He added that they have started their training in school and have been doing a lot of traditional preparations.

“We’ve not being doing well in preparing our athletes. The students will be engaging with specialised coaches in field events and we have tried to come away from the tracks.

“We’ve learnt from other schools on how-to strategies and only the outstanding performers will be taken to the zone and coaches.”

There more than 300 athletes that participated at the QVS inter-house at the ANZ Stadium in Suva yesterday.

Bau House were the winners after bagging 19 gold medals, 11 silvers, 12 bronze. The second place to Verata House with 13 gold medals, 16 silvers while third was Tovata House with 10 gold medals, 8 silvers, 14 bronze. Rewa House came fourth with 9 gold medals, 17 silvers and 15 bronze medals.
