Nakasi High School students Savenaca Loganimoce and Joe Roqica have set their goals on going a par better come the Fiji finals at the HFC Stadium on August 18-20.

Loganimoce broke the Triple N Zone junior boys’ long jump re­cord, however, it was not verified by the track referees.

The Bureta, Ovalau, Lomaiviti na­tive had jumped a distance of 5.75 metres in his best jump. The record is held by Simione R of Lelean Me­morial School in 2017 with a jump of 5.52 metres.

He took gold in the event.

“I dedicate my achievement to my mother Unaisi Moimoivakula Se­vakatini for always supporting me. She is in Taveuni. This gold is also for my sisters Mere and Viniana Dibola,” Loganimoce said.

“I want to thank God for His strength and love.

“I know the competition at the Coke Games will be tougher than the zone.

“I’m glad to have teachers and athletes who are always encourag­ing me to do my best; I will work hard to get that gold medal.”

Fellow athlete, Roqica who hails from Vativa, Wailevu East, Caka­udrove also broke a record in the sub junior boys’ javelin.

He threw a distance of 32.41m while previous record held by In­oke T of Pundit Shreedhar Maha­raj College in 2017 was 29.33 me­tres.

“My teacher Mr Lal asked me to throw so I gave it a try,” he said.

“This win was a surprise; I will do my best at the Coca-Cola Games to win gold for my school.

“If those well-known schools like Queen Victoria School, Ratu Kada­vulevu School can do it, we can do it too.”

Nakasi High School was crowned the new winners of the boys’ divi­sion in the Triple N zone with 16 gold, 9 silver and 7 silver.

Dethroned champions, Lelean Memorial School won 8 gold, 10 silver, and 6 bronze in second place while Sila Central High School set­tled in place with 4 gold, 7 silver and 13 bronze.

Adi Cakobau School won the girls’ division with 41 gold, 25 silver and 17 bronze.
