The younger brother of Semi “The Trailer” Radrada, Netani Waqavatu is out to make a name for himself but in a different sport.
The 18-year-old won the senior boys 100 meters blue ribbon event for Tovata house at the Queen Victoria School Inter-House at the ANZ Stadium in Suva today.
The Somosomo, Taveuni lad says he is happy to return to the tracks after a long break.
“I didn’t imagine myself coming this far and to win the Blue Ribbon event is a bonus. I attribute all this to God. But the focus now shifts to the Coca Games, we will have to train hard because it will be even tougher and we have to bring in our “A” game.”
The Tailevu Zone is next on the agenda for Waqavatu and this will be held next month.
