Pacific Sprint King Banuve Tabakaucoro today launched the 2019 Chow Games with the Fiji Primary School Athletics Association and FMF Foods Ltd.
Tabakaucoro says it’s exciting to be part of the games which kick-started his athletics career.
He adds that developing grass root athletics in Fiji is his focus and being part of the games is a great way of helping young athletes develop.
“I’m not a stranger to the Chow Games this is the system that I came through. Like it says on the board “where it all began” for me. It was a very important phase in my life, this was the sport that I chose to live off and make my money. And I’m just really excited as we are a week away from the Chow Games, I know what the kids are thinking and feeling.”
18 districts with more than 1700 athletes are set to take part this year.
The 2019 Chow Games will begin next Friday with the finals set to take place next Saturday at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.
