It was a perfect farewell gift for Suva Grammar coach and former Fijian sprinter, Jone Delai as Grammar secured the Coca Cola Games Boys Division title after winning 11 gold, 6 silver and 6 bronze.

Grammar last won in 2011.

It came down to the 4x400 metres relays to determine the winner as it was a close contest between Grammar and QVS.

However he says they have done it this year.

Delai has also paid tribute to the former students of the school for backing the team at the Coca Cola Games.

Team Manager Akuila Wainiqolo says the school has been working hard to bring the title back.

He also talked about how two of their athletes dived at the finish line to win gold.

QVS finished in second place with 9 gold, 5 silver and 7 bronze, RKS is in third place with 6 gold, 5 silver and 9 bronze, Natabua is in fourth place with 3 gold, 4 silver and 4 bronze, MGM is in fifth place with 3 gold and 1 silver while Marist is in sixth place with 2 gold, 8 silver and 7 bronze.
