546 athletes from seven schools in the Central Division are taking part in the 2017 FMF Chow Games which started on a high note today at Suva’s ANZ Stadium Stadium.
The two day meet sees seven schools such as Suva One, Suva Two, Nasinu, Veiuto Primary, Wainibuka, Namosi and Yat Sen Primary.
Fiji Athletics Coach Bola Tafou says competition among athletes was intense after day one of the competition.
“It’s so great to see the competition here today especially with the numbers. We have a few schools that have pulled out and run on their own and gave other opportunity for other students like Suva 2 and it’s great for Fiji Athletics in the future.”
