Setting the right target has paid off for Katarina Yava of Namosi Secondary School after claiming gold in the girls' 3000 metres open grade final at the Coca-Cola Suva Zone 1 competition.
The Year 10 student says preparations towards the Zone this year was a bit complicated as she had to balance school work and training at the same time, but she is proud of what she has achieved.
The 16-year-old has now turned her focus to the Coca-Cola Games next week.
