Athletics Fiji is concerned on poor turnout of athletes in their weekly trials as they prepare for the 2019 Pacific Games.

Head Coach Albert Miller says they’re hoping to rope in quality athletes as soon as possible so that they have ample time to prepare.

I think we slowly building up momentum and we’re hoping as we getting closer to the games we would be able to attract more quality athletes and we’re just keeping our fingers cross that more athletes come and take part. We’re running really low in most of the events. Sprints we’re well represented and we know that athletics it’s not only about sprint, its jumps and the throws and we’re hoping to get more people in the next few months.

Miller says they are aiming to take 25 athletes which consists of ten females and 15 males at the Games.

The games will run through the 7th to the 20th of July next year.
