Suva Grammar School student Tevita Sokiveta clocked 10.72 seconds to win the senior boys’ 100metres boys final of the Suva Zone Two competition yesterday.

The Nawaikama, Gau native burned the Laucala tracks leaving his rivals Bronson Lee and Sydney Stodard of Marist Brothers High School stunned.

Speaking to SUNsports after the win Sokiveta said he will turn his focus to the Coca-Cola Games.

“This is my last year in school so I want to stamp a mark before I leave,” he said.

“The plan now is to work hard for the Coke Games where the ultimate prize is. If I work hard then I believe nothing will stop me from winning that gold medal.”

Sokiveta said it’s all about making sacrifice, consistency and the desire to stay fit all this time.

“Everyone knows the atmosphere at the games and how it affects our starts.

“For that I’ll have to work on my starts and make sure that I don’t break start,” he added.

Meanwhile, Sokiveta also took out the senior boys’ 200m final.
