SOKO Naiyaga Tuisese of Blue House said confidence and teamwork were the key to win the sub junior girls 400 metres final during the Suva Grammar School inter-house at the ANZ Stadium in Suva yesterday.

Tuisese, Torika Ducia and Grace Baravilala crossed the finish line together to claim the gold medal for their house.

She said they were excited when running in the final that they decided to cross the tape together holding hands to signify unity.

"We thank the Lord for our lives and for our strength to enable us to reach our goal," she said.

"We want to thank our coach Jone Delai for his hard work and dedication helping us to prepare and our parents for the support."

The Serea, Naitasiri lass is the granddaughter of former Fiji rugby skipper, coach and former government minister, Ratu Ilaitia Tuisese.

She is the daughter of Naitasiri assistant coach and former national rugby rep, Ilaitia Tuisese junior.

She said self-discipline and determination were the key components to be successful in taking part in any event.

"If we want to make it to the Coca-Cola Games this year, we need to work on our skills and have discipline."
