Saratibau in top form for Lautoka Muslim

LAUTOKA Muslim College will be banking on Veresi Saratibau to win a medal at the Coca-Cola Games in Suva later this month.

The Year 11 Student broke a 20-year-old record at the Coca-Cola Games Lautoka zone competition at Churchill Park last month.

Saratibau set a record in the junior boy's javelin with a throw of 49.45 metres.

The previous record set in 1994 was 42.53m.

The school will field 13 athletes in the two-day competition.

Coach Inoke Vucago said their preparations had been going on well.

Vucago said the aim was to better their performance from last year.

"Most of our athletes are not from well-off families so everybody is pitching so that they can get the best preparation," he said.

"The athletes go through a pool recovery session after hard training. We are concentrating on our relay teams especially in the intermediate category.

"They finished second behind winners Natabua High School in the zone competition so that is the benchmark. Our medal hope is on Veresi in the javelin and Sailosi Gavin in the 200 metres."

The Coca-Cola Games will be held at the ANZ Stadium in Suva from April 25 and 26.
