MGM High School sprinters have created history after Waisale Inoke won gold in the Senior Boys 100 metres final and Kesaia Boletanakadavu of MGM won the Senior Girls 100 metres gold medal for the first time in the Coca Cola Games.

This is historic as MGM had never won the Senior Grade 100 metres finals.

Inoke says he did not expect to win the blue ribbon event and is grateful to God for the strength and protection throughout his preparations. He says he was expecting a tough contest from the Natabua sprinter.

Inoke has dedicated the win to all his MGM High School supporters.

His next target is to represent Fiji in athletics.

Meanwhile, Kesaia Boletanakadavu says it was not an easy feat running for MGM High because it is mostly known as an academic focused school.

She says training was tough but she is thankful to God for providing her the strength to compete today.

She has dedicated her win to her parents and supporters of MGM High School.

Viliame Rawairua of RKS settled for the silver medal in the Senior Boys 100 metres while Ratu Alipate Vuiwakaya of Natabua won the bronze medal.
