Sigatoka aims for better results

Sigatoka Methodist College athletes aim to lift their standard of participation in the Fiji Secondary School Athletics Finals compared with previous years.

Team coach Sekove Rasukamaimaleya said the selected participants were focused in participating rather than competing.

“Our aim this year is to improve our standard compared to last year.

“We featured 32 athletes last year and it has increased to 40 this year, so I have witnessed an improvement especially in our school inter-house and provincial zone competitions, said Rasukamaimaleya.

Located on the banks of the Sigatoka River, Sigatoka Methodist College was an academic institution of famous rugby sevens players such as Apisai Domolailai, Jasa Veremalua and former Fiji Secondary School Athletics Finals 800 metres champion Aporosa Tabulawaki.

“We are proud of our ex scholars who have donned our national jumper and we will try and improve our athletes in order to meet the standard of our Olympians.”

The athletes from Sigatoka acknowledged parents, ex-scholars and teachers for their continuous support in their preparation towards the games.

“We thank the ex-scholars, and friends, especially our parents and I ask for their support for our team in the competition ahead,” Rasukamaimaleya said.
