FIJI under-19 basketball rep Tiyana Kainamoli traded her basketball shoes for track shoes at the Coca-Cola Games on Saturday.

The Year 11 student of Saint Joseph's Secondary School won silver in the junior girls long jump at the ANZ stadium om Saturday. She jumped a distance of 4.81metres.

Despite finishing second, Kainamoli said she was surprised to win a medal.

Kainamoli did her best to balance her basketball and athletics training as she was also preparing for the National Easter Basketball at the Vodafone Arena last weekend.

Kainamoli featured for Neptune Dynamic Redz, the runners-up in the women's competition.

"I tried my best to balance my basketball and athletics training," she said.

"I do tracks training every Monday before doing court training the rest of the days. I am a bit surprised to win a medal here today (yesterday)."

Kainamoli finished second to Adi Cakobau School's Maca Korolevu who managed a distance of 4.95m. Asinate Kasowaqa of Lelean Memorial Svhool was third with a distance of 4.69m.

The Tailevu lass said she preferred to continue with her basketball career in the future.

"I'm happy with this achievement but I look forward to continue my career with basketball," she added.
