OFFICIALS at the Athletics Fiji (AF) organised competition were pleased with the progress of athletes at the ANZ Stadium in Suva yesterday.

The event was time trials for the Youth Olympic Games training squad while it was a normal competition for the others.

Competition official Maciu Koroitamana said they also had athletes from outside of Suva attending the meet.

"We had athletes from the West and North as well and this is really good for our competition because it's not just concentrating on the Suva athletes," he said.

"They performed well in their respective events and they are showing good progress.

"Also we are thankful to all the officials, parents and supporters for taking time out to attend the competition."

The Suva clubs pitched in to run the competition and Koroitamana said their initiative was highly appreciated.

He asked athletes to keep training and to be consistent with their performance.

"We don't want to see an improved performance in one competition and then a drop in form in the next one.

"We want to see them make steady progress and so it would be best for them to keep working hard and train consistently.

"We are noting their times so that we can monitor their progress."
