Boost for Lau school

YASAYASA Moala College's golden aim in this year's Coca-Cola Games received a timely boost yesterday.

Digicel Fiji presented the team from Lau a set of training and participating uniforms for the two-day event starting today at the ANZ Stadium.

Yasayasa Moala coach Iliesa Draunidalo said the sponsorship would boost their athletes' morale in winning more medals this year.

The school managed a bronze medal in the senior boys 400 metres through Nicholas Korovulavula in last year's Fiji Finals.

Korovulavula is back this year and Draunidalo hopes he had a good chance of winning the gold medal in the event.

Yasayasa Moala also won the Maritime Zone boys' division at the stadium on Tuesday.

Draunidalo said the Maritime Zone win had also boosted the morale of the athletes.

"We brought 13 athletes but only 12 will be competing as they have qualified. They are all boys," he said.

"We will be competing in all the divisions in most of the track and field events."

Digicel Fiji head of marketing Sheryl Singh said they were proud to support the Yasayasa Moala team.

Yasayasa Moala made its return to the annual schools athletics meet last year after a lapse of about two decades.
