SAQANI High School has high hopes on their star sprinter Livai Volitivuravura.

Volitivuravura will fly the school flag in the senior boys 100 metres tonight and team official Jimilai Qaranivalu said he was one of their top bets.

Volitivuravura is the champion of the Savusavu Zone in both 100 and 200m events.

"Livai is one of our best athletes having won in the zone meet. He has been in Suva for a while now preparing for the games and we are hoping for a good performance from him," Qaranivalu said.

The school from Cakaudrove, Vanua Levu will be fielding 12 athletes in this year's Fiji Finals compared to three last year.

Qaranivalu said they had eight boys and four girls competing in the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m track events and discus and shot put in the field events on the next two days.

He said the athletes had prepared well and were determined to return home with some medals.

"Our trip is sponsored by the government and we are hoping to make the most of this opportunity," Qaranivalu said.

"For most of our athletes, this will be their first time in the games and we will ensure they enjoy the experience."

Some parents have also accompanied the team to help the officials and support their children in the games.
