MIRIAMA Tikoiqeleni of Bucalevu Secondary School scooped gold after setting a record of 33.79 metres in the intermediate girls discuss throw at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

The Year 13 student said compared with last year, this year was quite different.

"This year we were provided with sports equipments and other training gear for the squad and I think that helped us."

"I remember when I was younger I won two gold medals in softball in the U11 and U12.

"And now, today, I'm just so happy that I made it to the Coca-Cola Games and I've won gold for my school."

"This win is for my coaches, school, family and all those who have been supporting up until today."

Kalara Tinaiciva of RLM settled for silver with a throw of 32.95 metres followed by Brack Gabrille of International School Nadi (ISN) with a throw of 31.91 metres.
