PREPARATION has not been easy for 15 athletes of Labasa Sangam (SKM) College as they aim to bag three gold medals at this year's much-anticipated Fiji Finals.

And they will ensure no stones are unturned in order to achieve their target come Friday.

The Fiji Times crew met the enthusiastic athletes and their three teachers at the Nabouwalu jetty in Bua before departing for Suva yesterday morning.

School HOD PEMAC Avinesh Chand said the athletes had toiled and trained hard for the purpose of achieving their goals.

"We have been training for weeks now and we are determined to achieve our target," he said.

"The road hasn't been easy for us as students had to juggle school, training and their families but we know we will make it.

"Last year, we didn't achieve any medals at the games and this year, we will try to make a difference and repeat what we achieved in 2012 and that was achieving three gold medals.

Athletes from Ratu Luke Secondary School, Labasa Muslim College and a few other schools were also part of the entourage that left for Suva yesterday to be part of the games.
