Miller fits the bill

ONLY one athlete in Fiji has met the requirements for qualification for the Youth Olympic Games scheduled for later this year in Nanjing, China.

He is Albert Miller Junior.

Miller will attend a regional qualifying athletics meet in Australia to finalise his qualification for the games.

The Marist Brothers High School student competes in the 100m and 200m events and is a contender for the blue ribbon event at the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Championship (Coca-Cola Games) this year.

The Sixth Former is the son of former national sprinter and current Athletics Fiji president Albert Miller.

The elder Miller said they were looking to send six athletes to the regional qualifying meet in Australia in March.

"We could send more but that would all depend on the funding," he said.

"But right now, only Miller Jr has met the criteria for qualification and his is the only nomination that we have done at the moment."

Miller Snr said they would confirm the remaining athletes after the final time trials this Saturday at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

"Athletes that do qualify and compete at the regional qualifying meet will need to win their respective events to guarantee automatic qualification to the Youth Olympics."
