BANUVE Tabakaucoro has set a Oceania Championships record in the 100m event with a time of 10.28 seconds in the Cook Islands on Thursday.

Tabakaucoro shaved off a few milliseconds of his own 10.46s record which he set in 2011.

Athletics Fiji president Joe Rodan praised the former Marist Brothers High School student for his performance at the meet.

"It's a good start for us new officials at Athletics Fiji," he said.

"It's a good start in our efforts to rebuilding athletics in the country and taking it back to the top where it used to be a few years ago."

Tabakaucoro withdrew from the 200m race because of niggling injury.

Natabua High School student Batinisavu Uluiyata also set a record in the 400m event with a time of 47.63s in the junior competition.

Gospel High School student Younis Bese won gold in the 200m event with a time of 25.04s and won silver in the 100m event with a time of 12.24s.

Leslie Copeland defended the gold medal in javelin with a throw of 70.66m.

The men's 4x100m relay team of Eugene Vollmer, Apolosi Ratumudu, Lepani Naivalu and Banuve Tabakaucoro won their event in a time of 41.61s.

Waisale Dausoko won silver in the long jump event with a new personal best of 7.22m.
