Tevu aims to win medals

THIS year's Fiji Finals will be the fifth for 19-year-old Tokasa Tevu. But it will not be the same as past years.

This will be the first time she will compete without her best friend and twin sister Milika Ravueleca.

Ravueleca is down with flu and was not able to travel with the Vunisea Secondary School team to the annual secondary school athletics meet in Suva. Tevu knows it will be hard without Ravueleca by her side but the lass from Niudua, Naceva Village in Kadavu is ready for the challenge.

"I am looking forward to competing in the games for the fifth time. I will miss my sister but will do my best to make her proud back home," the Sixth Former said.

Tevu will be competing in the senior girls 400 metres and 800m events.

She is yet to win a gold medal but has tasted victory in 2011 where her 4x400m relay team won the bronze medal.

"I can't promise anything but all I can say is I will do my best and hope to win something this year."

Vunisea will be fielding 20 athletes in this year's games compared to 13 last year.
