ELENOA Sailosi has set her sights on retaining her 100m and 200m gold medals at the Coca-Cola Games at the ANZ Stadium in May.

Yesterday, the Adi Cakobau School student blitz the wet and muddy grass tracks at Suva Grammar School to win the two events in the Triple N Zone athletics meet.

She ran a time of 12.65s in the senior girls 100m event and in the 200m event, she clocked 25.46s.

Sailosi said she was happy with her times but vowed to give a better performance on the new rubber tracks at the renovated Laucala bowl.

"I have been training very hard for this year's meet and I am ready to defend my titles," she said.

"Also our athletics squad is confident of retaining our girls overall title at the meet too."

She said she was looking forward to meeting Sisilia Seavula of Saint Joseph's Secondary School on the tracks once again.

Meanwhile, fellow ACS teammate Miriama Senokonoko won the best female award at the zone meet after she won three golds, one each in the 400m, triple jump and 4x100m event respectively.
