IN his second attempt, Richard Niulevu settled for a bronze medal.

After finishing seventh in his first attempt last year, the 19-year-old finished third in the senior boys 100metres blue ribbon finals at the Coca-Cola Games at the ANZ Stadium on Friday night.

Niulevu, a Fiji representative in the sport of Aussie Rule said he was determined to win gold in the 100m final.

"This is the second time I competed in the 100m, I finished seventh last year, I came into the race with the target to win gold but to settle for a bronze medal year is a bonus for me," he said.

"And I thank God for this opportunity."

The Naroi lad from Moala, Lau said he would now shift his focus on the upcoming AFL International Cup which would be held in Melbourne, Australia next August.

"My task for athletics is done and now the focus is on the world cup in August. I will go back and continue my training but I'll keep in contact with the AFL Fiji officials here in Suva."

He said his goal was to reclaim his spot in the national AFL side. Niulevu was part of the national side that participated at the AFL IC in 2011 where Fiji won the second division.
