Naulu wins race

SPRINTER Makereta Naulu clocked a time of 12.5 seconds in the Pre-Easter Twilight meet at the ANZ Stadium in Suva last night.

The ACS student will compete in the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia next month.

“The race was a tough one and it gave me an opportunity to test my performance ahead of the games,” he said.

“It will be tough in Gold Coast, but I am prepared to take up the challenge.”

Naulu had a good outing at the 2017 Pacific Mini Games in Port Vila, Vanuatu.

“We have spent some weeks in Australia ahead of the Commonwealth Games and we were exposed to the high level competition,” he said.

Salote Baravilala came second in a time of 13.25s.
