ADI Cakobau School's reign at the Triple N Zone athletics competition continued when they successfully defended their title at the Suva Grammar School grounds yesterday.

The Sawani-based school won a total of 31 gold, 16 silver and nine bronze medals in the one-day event.

The medal collection was far more superior compared to second-placed Dilkusha High School (two gold, one silver and one bronze) and third-placed Sila High School (one gold, two silver and two bronze).

The emphatic victory could have been better had ACS won the senior girls 4x100 metres event but miscommunication with competition officials saw them finish third.

A decision was later made to have a re-run of the race between first placed Dilkusha, second placed Sila, third placed ACS and fourth placed William Cross College next week.

Sila Central won the boys division with 15 gold, nine silver and eight bronze medals.

Meanwhile, six records were set at the meet, one of which was a 15-year old record in the senior girls 200m.

The old record of 25.76s set by former Pacific sprint queen Makalesi Bulikiobo for Lelean was broken by Elenoa Sailosi of ACS when she ran a time of 25.46s.

In the senior girls triple jump, Miriama Senokonoko of ACS jumped 9.91 metres to surpass the old record of 9.63m set by Seini Vunibaka of ACS in 2011.

Vika Matarogo of Dilkusha set a record in the senior girls javelin throw with a distance of 39.57m to beat the previous mark of 37.64m held by Vani Vakarauwale of ACS.

The sub-junior girls 100m record of 14.40s set by Vika Ratumaimuri of ACS in 2011 was broken by Temalesi Vocea also of ACS who ran a time of 13.78s.

She also broke the sub-junior girls 200m record when she ran a time of 29.18s.

The intermediate girls javelin record was smashed by Kelera Raidrola of ACS.
