Athletes battle in Lautoka event

Maciu Malo
Saturday, March 08, 2014

LAUTOKA athletics giants Natabua High and Jasper Williams High schools will face off with Central Division giants Marist Brothers High School, Adi Cakobau and Gospel in a friendly competition this morning at Natabua High School ground.

Meet director Albert Wise said the competition would gauge the standard of their athletes against the best from Suva.

He said the objective of the meet was to expose the Lautoka athletes to tough competition before they feature in the zone meet.

Wise said the presence of the Suva athletes would push the West athletes to perform above expectation.

"This type of competition will also allow the coaches to gauge the weaknesses of their athletes," he said.

"Athletes cannot just train and expect to win races. In fact, they need to be exposed to tough competition so they can know which areas they need to improve on.

"It will also give our athletes the platform for the Lautoka Zone and also the Coca-Cola Fiji Games."

Wise said Lautoka students are hardly exposed to this type of competition.

"This kind of competition is common in Suva where schools compete weekly to help improve their performance during the Fiji finals.

"Our plan now is to have weekly competition to best prepare our athletes."
