The Nadi Jetrunners Club is pleased that one of its runners has made the Team Fiji squad to the Pacific Games.
Avikash Lal, who will represent the country in the five,10 and 21 kilometer races at the regional meet, started his career from the Nadi based club.
Club President Abhinesh Kumar says he is hopeful that Lal will return with some medals.
“Just at the age of 19 he has done wonders. He has won Gold in the Oceania cross country championships and recently he represented Fiji at the World cross country championship. Going to the Pacific Games, I believe he is a medal prospect.”
The Pacific Games will be held from the 4th to the 18th of next month in Papua New Guinea.
