Venus on top of the world

VENUS ended its 20-year winless jinx by taking out the Natabua High School inter-house competition yesterday.

The Venus team won both the boys and girls categories.

Jupiter, which dominated the competition for the past decade, failed to find its form and finished at the bottom of the overall medal tally.

Venus collected 28 gold, 44 silver and 19 bronze medals.

Mars was second with 27 gold, 21 silver and 17 bronze medals.

Pluto claimed 21 gold, 20 silver and 20 bronze medals while Jupiter finished with 18 gold, 17 silver and 22 bronze medals.

Meanwhile, Natabua head coach Sairusi Naituku has raised concerns with the qualifying standards set for this year's Cola-Cola Games.

According to Naituku, schools not competing on the synthetic tracks would be disadvantaged.

Naituku said there was a big difference running on grass tracks and on the synthetic tracks.

"We will discuss the changes made by the organisers," he said.

"It is a major issue because there is a big difference. We are using the grass tracks while the schools in the Central Division are using the synthetic tracks for the inter-house competitions.

"This will not only affect the schools in the West but the North and the island zones. The qualifying standards are harder to achieve on grass."
