Banuve Tabakaucoro is definitely back.
This is after he retained his 200 meters title at the Pacific Games yesterday afternoon.
It was one of the best Pacific Games 200 meters races but Banuve Tabakaucoro is truly the Pacific sprint king after beating Jeremy Dodson in the final but he says he looks forward to more competition with the USA based athlete.
“He’s been in the game for a long time, and he’s somebody that I look up to. Both his personal bests are better than mine in the 100 and 200. We have our chat sessions, we talk to each other and talk about how we can fix each other’s game plan and how we are going to execute our races every day so, today was just a day where we had to go head to head. I am really looking forward to the future and meeting him a lot more.”
Tabakaucoro clocked a time of 20.87 seconds in the 200 meters final but his personal best is 20.53 seconds.
