Meet president Josaia Gonekalou said eleven schools and approximately 500 athletes participated in the first day of the zone.“Since most of the school’s their preparation was in haste, but still they produced the results and I believe they achieved their targets for day one.”

He said the standout athlete for Day One was Reddy who was also named in the national football under-19 side.

Reddy plays for the Nadi football team.

“He ran in the 1500m plus 800m and came first in both. So with the level of fitness we believe he can achieve good results in the Coca Cola games.”
