Ratu Kadavulevu School sprinter Nacani Rasoqosoqo is one of the favourites to win the Senior Boys 100 metres in the Coca-Cola Games at the end of this month.

Rasoqosoqo was given the Viti FM Best Male Athlete Award at the Tailevu Zone after winning gold in the Senior Boys 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 x 100 metres.

The last time an RKS athlete won the Blue Ribbon event was in 2019 and that was through Kolinio Radrudru.

Rasoqosoqo is one of 14 senior athletes in the RKS squad this year.

He ran for Ratu Navula College in the 2019 Coca-Cola Games and finished fifth in the Intermediate Boys 100 metres.

That Intermediate Boys 100 metres final at the 2019 Coca-Cola Games also featured Tevita Sokiveta who attended RKS at the time.

Sokiveta is now Suva Grammar School’s Senior Boys 100 metres champion.

RKS won the boy's division in 2019 with 14 gold, 11 silver and 35 bronze while Adi Cakobau School won the girl's division with 17 gold, 12 silver and 10 bronze.

69 RKS athletes have been chosen to defend the title.

The Coca-Cola Games will be held from the 22nd to the 24th of this month.
