Facebook: Laucala Bay Athletics Club

Coaching Staff:

The Laucala Bay Athletics Club (LBAC) was formed back in the late 1990’s by Albert Miller, Paul Yee, Henry Elder Jnr and Bola Tafo’ou as a way forward for Athletics in the country and at a time when clubs were slowly disappearing. The idea of setting up the club was basically to accommodate the needs of up and coming athletes who had showed a lot of potential and interest in the sport of Track & Field.

Athletes such as; James Goulding (Javelin), Autiko Daunakamakama (400 Hurdles) , Saula Roko (Sprints), John Lumkon (Sprints), Litiana Miller (Sprints), Vani Senokonoko (LJ) , Mereoni Raluve, Maria Livinawa (Shot Put), and Iowana Sera (Pole Vault & Heptathlon). These were just some of the athletes who were members of the LBAC in 1999. The athletes went on to win a number of medals for Fiji at the 1999 Guam South Pacific Games.
