Saturday, April 26, 2014

NATABUA High School's Josefa Matau set a record in the sub-junior boys long jump.

His new jump of 5.47 metres broke a 16-year old record of 5.35m set by Iftekar Ahmed of Nadi Muslim College in 1998.

Samuela Tamani of Queen Victoria School also broke the old record. Tamani managed a distance of 5.40m while Marika Sevakadrau of Korovuto College just fell short by few centimetres to settle for the bronze medal. Sevakadrau jumped a distance of 5.32m.

In another record breaking achievement, Sailosi Falewai of QVS broke a 21-year old record in the junior boys shot-put event.

Falewai threw a distance of 16.56m to shatter the old record of 15.68m set by Jone Cavubati of Marist Brothers High School in 1993.

Josua Drega of Levuka Public School threw a distance of 15m to win silver while Kelepi Gucake of MBHS's throw of 14.94m was enough to secure him the bronze medal.
