Suva Zone One president Uraia Toribau is adamant participating schools in this year’s meet will stamp their mark at this year’s national Coca-Cola Games.

“Our athletes continue to set standards and no doubt will do so again this year,” Toribau said.

Toribau made the comments during the opening ceremony of the Suva Zone One meet at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

Toribau acknowledged the hard work by all participating 24 schools and urged them to give their all as to ensure the sacrifices were not put to waste.

“I thank the 24 principals and schools officials for putting maximum effort into preparations.

“I know athletes will also give their all for all events in the next one and a half days.”

Toribau said they had fit the meet over the two days to give ample time for athletes to move around between events.

Meanwhile, the Suva Zone One meet created history being the first zone meet to be televised on national television.

“I also believe with the coverage it will allow more support from parents as well as give an extra boost to athletes.”
