Athletics competitions on again
After a long layoff, Athletics Fiji kick starts its weekly competition at the Post Fiji Stadium tomorrow. The program, to include all sprints, distance and field events, will feature former athletes aiming to make a return on the international arena. Elite athletes selected from the secondary schools' Coke Light Games have also been training for the competition. Competition standards is expected to be high and selectors will be scouting for potential athletes for a training squad to prepare for the Oceania Grand Prix and the 2007 South Pacific Games in Apia. Special guests at the competition will be the Athletes in Action club from USA.
