Update: 1:17PM JOHN Riccardo of Marist Brothers High School won another gold for the Kaunikuila boys at the finals of the 800m sub-junior boys event.

The 14-year old was a three time gold medalist at last year’s Chow Games after winning the 400m, 800m and 4 by 100m events.

He said he was happy to win the 800m race and he now looked forward to the Coca Cola Games.

“I am really happy with my performance especially since this is only my second time to participate in a national athletics meet,” he said.

The Namosi lad will also be taking part in the 400m finals.
