ATHLETICS Fiji will be able to confirm their squad to the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Oceania Qualification Tournament by the end of this week.

Twenty athletes had been identified to participate in the final time trials last Saturday however, two didn't because of injuries.

Athletics Fiji general secretary Maciu Koroitamana said those who did participate would have to wait for the selectors decision.

"The time trials went well and we saw a lot of improvements from the athletes that participated," he said.

"But now everything is in the hands of the selectors and they will identify by the end of this week who will go to the qualifying tournament in Australia."

Koroitamana said the two injured athletes had time until the middle of this week to recover and prove to selectors that they are capable of meeting the qualifying standard times.

"Kayla Yee and Unaisi Vatulili are the two on the injured list and we are awaiting medical clearance from the doctors to test them on the tracks.

"If they do meet the required standard time then the selectors will consider them."

At the moment, the lone athlete who has met both A and B standard time in the 100m and 200m is Albert Miller Jr.
