Star is born

A new star is born on the tracks for Fiji.

This young dedicated runner, Petero Veitaqomaki, whose story unfolded in The Fiji Times on Saturday, July 1, that he trained so hard for the 2017 Oceania Championships at the sand dunes (not nightclub) even after the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics final.

It paid off for this lad and for the nation when he won gold in the 800 metres and helped his team take out gold in the 4×100 metres which is a great achievement and sacrifice for a 17-year-old lad.

Congratulations and celebrations and may the good Lord bless you in all your future games. Vinaka, go Pete, go.
