Saturday, April 26, 2014

WINNING gold for their respective schools is the pride that always inspire athletes who compete at the Coca-Cola Games each year.

And yesterday, Pita Tamani had a special reason for winning the intermediate boys javelin, with a throw of 58.78meters.

The Levuka Public School Year 11 student dedicated his gold medal win to the school's 150th anniversary celebration which will be held at the school when the second school term resumes in two weeks time.

"This gold medal win, I want to dedicate it to my school because we will be celebrating its 150th birthday," en emotional Tamani said.

The Ovalau lad won gold in the same event last year. He said defending the title this year was a huge challenge.

"The competition gets tougher each year. I came with a mission to defend my title and I thank the Almighty for giving me the courage and strength to do so."

Timoci Matiavi of Nilsen High College settled for silver while Josefa Vumalumu claimed bronze with a throw of 55.57m.
