KATARINA LILICAMA of Napuka Secondary School today hopes to break a second record at the Coca Cola Games after winning gold in the Intermediate Girls Discus event today.
Lilicama broke a record of 35.12m set in 2015, after throwing a distance of 37.10m today.
She said she realised she was good throwing long distances when she threw stones or sticks to get mangoes down from trees.
“I am happy right now for breaking the record and I hope to do the same in the intermediate Girls Javelin event tomorrow,” she said.
“I’ve worked hard to get here and tomorrow will be extra special because I will be participating with my twin sister.
Lilicama was also a gold medalist and record breaker for the intermediate girls Javelin last year.
