THE long distance travelling to the ANZ Stadium wasn't going to dampen Akeneta Seniyaqona's spirit at this year's Coca-Cola Games.

The twenty-year-old of Napuka Secondary School from Vanua Levu scooped gold in the senior girls' javelin throw yesterday with a distance of 40.72 metres in the field event.

"Preparations towards this year's games was not easy. There has been intense training for this competition," she said.

"Distance wise, travelling was pretty far for most of us but after today (yesterday), it was all worth it and I just want to thank my coach Master Jone for training and also advising us (squad) on our preparations, my family, my school for their never ending support and the other athletes.

"I'd also want to thank God for giving me strength in winning gold in this year's Coca-Cola Games."

Vika Matarugu of Dilkusha High School managed silver medal with a distance of 39.40m followed by Sainimere Naivitoma of Sigatoka Methodist High School who settled for bronze with a throw of 38.69m.
