BINESH Kumar continues his brilliant form winning another medal at the Oceania Masters Championship in Melbourne, Australia yesterday.

The Nadi Jet Runners Club official/athlete collected silver medal in the eight-kilometre cross country race with a time of 31 minutes 6 seconds, 4s behind the Australian winner. The 38-year-old Kumar who competes in the 35-40 years group earlier managed a bronze medal in the 5km race.

He is now focusing on the 1500 metres and 3000m steeplechase events.

Jet Runners Club founder and president Abinesh Kumar said it was a proud achievement for the club and the country. "For the past two years, we have been working on reviving long distance running in the country and now we are reaping the reward," Abinesh said.

"We are the flying jets of long distance running in Fiji and we hope Binesh's achievement inspire our members to get better."
