Defending champion leads Ba Zone medal tally

Maciu Malo
Friday, March 28, 2014

DEFENDING champion Xavier College looks set to win this year's Coca-Cola Games Ba athletics zone.

The school is leading the medal tally after yesterday's day one in the boys division while A D Patel leads the girls division.

Xavier leads the overall medal tally with five gold medals and closely followed by A D Patel with four gold medals after day one.

Zone meet manager Josaia Cota said Xavier was highly tipped to win the zone meet.

"Xavier athletes are in top form and they look set to again win this year's event," he said.

"They have been impressive on day one and I believe they will increase their medal tally during the finals.

"But other schools such as A.D Patel and Ba Sanatan cannot be written off because anything can happen in the final."

Meanwhile, the battle for the blue ribbon event will feature two Ba Methodist School sprinters.

Nailaga flyer Taito Bula, who won the first 100m heat with a time of 11.44sec, will face strong competition from his teammate Graham Stanley who won the second heat with a time of 11.51sec.

"It will be interesting to see these top sprinters and team-mates battle for the blue ribbon event," said Cota.

"Bula looks set to win the title but other finalists cannot be written off because they will all want to win the race."

No record was broken during the first day but Cota believes records will tumble in the finals.

Competition continues today.
