There will be no Powerade National Torch Relay for the Coca Games this year.
This is due to COVID-19 restrictions and there’s only a week left before the Games.
Coca-Cola marketing manager Lawrence Tikaram says however, spirit of students and parents are still high.
“This will be the 14th year I think if I can recall that we’ve had the torch relay except for last year and because it’s an Olympic year what it does symbolize is it symbolizes the true spirit of unity in diversity that we have amongst us”
