KELERA Sing of Saint Joseph's Secondary School sung victory songs as she grabbed a double gold medals in the intermediate girls long and triple jump events.

Sing, who hails from Tavua Village on the island of Koro in the Lomaiviti group said she was satisfied with her contribution to the school at this year's Coca-Cola Games. She jumped a distance of 11.21m in the triple jump.

The 16-year-old won gold in the long jump last year. Yesterday, she scooped a double, an achievement, she said was worth the sweat.

"I prepared really well for this year's event and I am lost for words winning two gold medals," Sing told Times Sport.

She said her double gold medals during the Suva Zone Two meet inspired her to victory at the national finals.

"I have been jumping since primary school and I am continuing again this year. The competition gets tougher each year but I believe its back to my preparation, I really prepared myself really well before coming here."

She wished her fellow SJSS teammates a good outing in their remaining events today.
