Sprinters battle for 100m title

Maciu Malo
Friday, March 21, 2014

THE stage is set to determine the fastest schoolboy in this year's Nadroga Navosa Secondary Schools athletics zone.

At the completion of the first day of competition at Lawaqa Park yesterday, two sprinters emerged as hot favourites for the famous blue ribbon event.

Taveuni flyer Ioane Tuiviani is eager to stamp his mark on the Nadroga Navosa schools zone meet.

The former Holy Cross student is carrying the hopes of Cuvu College after clocking the fastest time in the boys 100m heats yesterday.

The 19-year-old made a slow start but powered his way in the last 50m to win the race with a time of 10.90s.

He said he expected tough competition in the final and wanted to end his outing with a flourish.

Tuiviani will face a tough battle from Sigatoka Andhra sprinter Pita Vonowale who stamped his authority in his heat with a time of 11.45s.

"I am happy with my performance today but I need to lift my performance again in the final," said Tuiviani.

"I know that all the other competitors will try their best to win the event.

"Personally, for me, I have set my aim and I will make sure to fulfil my target."

Tibeirata lad Vonowale said he was also ready to stamp his mark in the event and was prepared to battle against his fellow competitors.

"I am looking forward to a tough competition and I will do my best to win the event," said Vonowale.

The 100m final will be run today.
