First gold for Rotuma
by Vuniwaqa Bola-Bari
This was possible when he competed in the sub-junior boys' long jump landing on 5.50m mark in his last attempt.
The lone athlete from the Island said it was his first Fiji finals but not his first time at the ANZ Stadium as he also took part in last year's Chow Games winning the silver medal in the 400 metres race.
"I won Silver in last year's Chow Games, so I was a bit confident to win gold today," Pau'u said.
He is the son of Chris Pau'u whose record in the 100m was broken by now Pacific Sprint king Banuve Tabakaucoro.
"This is history for Rotuma, because this is our first gold medal in the game. There was nothing different in my training, I did the same as all the others but I made sure I prayed hard and trained hard too."
Still in Year 9 at Rotuma High School, Pau'u is aiming to continue until he reaches Year 12 and to migrate to his father's former school — Marist Brothers High School.
"I came in as the underdog, being the only athlete from Rotuma, and I will remain with Rotuma until I reach Form 6 then I will want to come to Marist."
Meanwhile Suva Grammar's Josefa Cama came second to Pau'u with a jump of 5.48metres and MBHS' Jone Balemaihawaii was third with a jump of 5.37metres.
