LAUTOKA Primary School's Keyasi Naidroka is being eyed as a gold medal prospect during the Chow Western Games which will start in the Sugar City on Friday.
The Class Eight student won the 200 metres event during the district meet this year.
According to Lautoka team manager Johnson Lee, Naidroka broke Eroni Cagi's under-14 200m record during the competition.
He said Naidroka did not participate in the Chow Games last year.
"We haven't had consistent training with all the athletes," Lee said.
"Most of the schools did not send their children last week because of examinations. So that is the biggest obstacle for us. But we are positive of having a full turnout in the next couple of days.
"The district meet was good. The highlight of the district meet was that a national record was broken. Eroni Cagi's U14 200 metre record was broken by Lautoka Primary School student Keyasi Naidroka.
"I think the national selectors should see him run. He is a bright prospect from Yasawa.
"Another boy, Tyron Williams, is another gold medal prospect for this year. Tyron beat last year's surprise athlete Marika Biuvanua Kasami.
"We have a few other medal prospects but you never know what happens on the day."
The Western Chow Games will be held at Churchill Park tomorrow and Saturday.
Meanwhile, schools in the north will converge at Subrail Park in Labasa tomorrow and Saturday for their competition.
