TAVUA College student Vokiti Joe set a new record in the Coca-Cola Games Vatukoula/Ra/Tavua zone at the Ra Sports ground yesterday.

Joe broke his old record of 1.60m he set last year to set a new height of 1.85m in the Junior boys high jump.

Zone meet manager Direndra Prasad said Joe was in superb form and he's on track to defend his gold medal at the Coca-Cola Fiji finals.

"Joe is one of our gold medal hopefuls from this zone and his win will inspire him to defend his gold medal he won last year in Suva," said Prasad.

"His gold medal win has helped his school lead the medal tally after day one of competition."

Other standout performers in yesterday's meet were Penang Sangam's Lorima Raratani who also set a new record in the Inter boys 400m event with a time of 52.44sec. The old record was 55.28.

Nakauvadra High School's Ilaisa Nasulinibawa etched his name in the zone history books with a throw of 52.38m in the senior boys' javelin to win a gold medal for his school.

Prasad said more records were expected to tumble during the finals later today.

Meanwhile, Tavua College leads the overall medal tally with seven gold medal while Vatukoula-based school Nilson High School is on second spot with three gold medals.

The competition continues today.
