ORGANISERS of today's Northern CBM Chow Games are positive that athletes would be able to set new games' records.

More than 100 athletes are expected to be part of the two-day tournament that begins at Subrail Park this morning.

Committee president Sisilia Cokanauto said students from 11 districts of the three provinces of Cakaudrove, Bua and Macuata would be part of the competition.

"The annual event gets tougher every year and we have produced good athletes as well," she said.

"This event is held in our divisions for two years and on the third year we move to Viti Levu for the national competition.

"So in the two years of divisional competition, our athletes are well groomed and prepared for the national competition."

Cokanauto said students of rural schools had also performed well.

"This year, schools from Taveuni are not participating along with schools from other parts of Cakaudrove," she said.

"So most of our students from Bua and Macuata will be participating in this two-day competition and only the students from Wailevu in Cakaudrove will represent the province.

"We are asking all parents and supporters to come and support our children in this competition," Cokanauto said.
