FORMER Marist Brothers High School athletes Ratu Tira Narara and Roy Ravana helped the Iowa Central 4x400m side set a new record at a regional competition in the US last weekend.

The duo helped Deon Sanders and Dan-Neil Telesford set a time of 3.17.47 minutes at the Region XI Indoor Championships.

The win sealed Iowa Central's domination in the men's team titles at regional competition.

Their former school teammate and national sprint king, Banuve Tabakaucoro was proud of their performance and achievement.

The Pacific's champion said the duo must be making good use of the excellent training facilities and quality competitions there.

"If they are breaking records than that means their training must be better compared to here," Tabakaucoro said.

"Also competing against athletes from the United States is not easy so they must have had quality opposition to run against and I'am really happy for their performance," he said.
