No athlete should be underestimated: Tabakaucoro

Former secondary schools 100 metres boys champion Banuve Tabakaucoro says no athlete can be counted out from winning a medal at the Coca Cola Games.
The games, which get underway tomorrow in Suva, will see hundreds of athletes vie for medals in the track and field events.
Tabakaucoro won the event once in 2011 for Marist Brothers High School, running a record time of 10.43 seconds, which still stands.
“There is a lot of hype and it has a lot of history behind it as well. A lot of young athletes coming in from the islands and all other big schools who haven’t been to the Coca Cola games and it will be tough for them. But I think they just have to get their mental game straight and sure they will do pretty well.”
The games start tomorrow morning with the first event at 9.40am with the first set of events.
