Tavua College and Coca-Cola Games gold medalist Yeshnil Karan’s fate of competing in the 2019 Pacific Games in July will be decided by Athletics Fiji in the next few days.
This after Karan won the 1500m and 3000m at the Coca-Cola Games underway at the Anz Stadium in Suva.
Athletics Fiji Head Coach Albert Miller says based on Karan’s time in both the 1500m and 3000m at the Fiji Finals, they will now look at the Team Fiji’s qualifying time to see if the youngster meets the qualifying standard.
Karan had earlier said that he is ready to represent Fiji at the Games in Samoa.
