I’ll have to train harder for the Triple N Zone, says a middle distance runner.

Sila Central High School’s Tevita Rakuita clocked 2.60minutes to win the senior boys’ 800 metres final at that ANZ Stadium, Suva, yesterday.

Rakuita told SUNsports that he is taking things one step at a time.

“Now, it’s the Triple N Zone for me,” he said.

The 19-year old knows that to qualify for the Coca-Cola Games, he needs to work hard.

“I want to take things slow and focus on the Triple N Zone first,” the Mokani, Tailevu lad said.

“There will be a lot of competition in the zone coming from other schools especially Lelean Memorial School. I’m looking forward to the zone because I want to gauge my fitness from there.”

Rakuita said at present he’s not even thinking about the Coca-Cola Games.

“I’ve to improve my time and my goal is to win my event in the zone.

“I’ve to train hard and prepare for what I want to achieve.

“Reducing my time I’ll need a lot of work and plus I’ve two weeks left which is a blessing for me.”
