Nakasi High School athlete, Jope Turagakula will be leading a determined group of athletes with an aim of securing some medals in this year’s Coca-Cola Games.

After winning the boys division title in the Triple N Zone, Turagakula’s zone record breaking throw in the senior boys javelin event has pulled a lot of interest from the school and old scholars ahead of the Fiji Finals.

The 19-year-old threw a distance of 51.54 metres at the Zone and is aiming to go further.

Nakasi High School Javelin coach, Vitoriano Rakaisau says they have been working hard to prepare their athletes.

Nakasi High School won the Triple N Zone boys division for the first time after taking 16 gold, 9 silver and 7 bronze while their girls won 2 gold, 1 silver and 3 bronze.

The 2022 Coca-Cola Games will be held from the 18th to the 20th of this month at the HFC Bank Stadium.
