Banuve Tabakaucoro is definitely back.
This is after he retained his 200 meters title at the Pacific Games this afternoon.
Even Samoa’s Jeremy Dodson acknowledges the fighting spirit in Banuve.
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.
Tabakaucoro’s coach Bola Tafoou says Banuve stuck to the race plan all throughout.
Meanwhile, Dodson just couldn’t find the right words to describe Tabakaucoro and says the Bau bullet’s return is a success story.
Tabakaucoro clocked a time of 20.87 seconds in the 200 meters final but his personal best is 20.53 seconds.
