Schools to take up cross-country racing

CROSS-Country races will be introduced at secondary school level this year.

This is revealed by Fiji athletics middle and long distance head coach Maciu Koroitamana, who recently returned from the International Coaching Enrichment Certificate Program at the University of Delaware in the US.

Koroitamana said they wanted to identify potential athletes and groom them for next year's Pacific Games which would be held in Papua New Guinea.

He said there was an operational committee working on organising the event which should take place in week eight of the second term of school.

"I've put together an operational committee to see the implementation of cross country races at secondary school level," he said.

"This will be done in the second term of school until the third term."

He said there were few venues that were available to host the event.

"Schools like Lelean Memorial, Lami High, and Adi Cakobau School and few more schools have shown interest to be part of this race."

Koroitamana said middle-distance and long-distance was very competitive during this year's Coca-Cola Games.
