With the Suva Zone 1 athletics meet fast approaching, The Fiji Times spoke to Iva Fifita, athletics co-ordinator of LDS Church College about the school's preparation for their zone competition this week.

"We're not really hard on our preparation because we have league going on and most of our athletes are also training for league" Fifita said.

"The majority of our players are also our athletes, so what they're doing right now is their personal training."

Despite their late preparation, Fifita seemed hopeful about the school's performance in the Suva Zone 1 competition.

"We are trying our best, we are banking on some of our junior boys and intermediate boys to get us gold," she stated.

"We have identified some that have gone past the standard qualifying times and distances."

The events Fifita believes LDS will perform well in are primarily on the field.

"Our gold will probably come from the throws," she said. "We want to keep that tradition."
