YASAWA lass Nanise Nailevu stamped her dominance in the junior girls 800m during the athletics competition between West and East schools at Natabua High School ground yesterday.

After defeating some of the top runners from Natabua High School, Jasper and Suva's Gospel High School, the Lautoka Andhra College Form 4 student has set her goal of winning a gold medal for her school.

Nailevu said she was happy with her performance and her aim was to defend her gold medal at the Lautoka zone and also to win a medal in this year's Coca-Cola Games.

She said the weekly competition had enabled her to gauge her performance against some of the best 800m runners.

"I failed to win any medal at last year's Coke Games despite winning a gold medal at the Lautoka zone," she said.

"The weekly athletics competition has helped me to improve on my performance and I am expecting a tough competition this year.

"My aim is to win a gold medal for my school during the zone and also during the Coke Games."

She said she expected tough competition from Natabua, Jasper and Ba Provincial at the zone meet.

Meanwhile, in yesterday's competition top athletes such as Jasper's Mereseini Naidau, 400m champion Mereseini Vukici and Natabua's track queen Abbygale Tikoisuva stamped their dominance in their respective events.

Competition official Albert Wise said the competition had enabled West athletes to gauge their performance against the best from Suva.
