Fiji will be represented by a sole athlete at the World Youth Athletics Championships in the Czech Republic next month.

Lautoka student - Isoa Me will compete in the 400-metres event.

He was picked from a short-list of school athletes after the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics meet that was held in Suva in May.

Fiji Athletics coach - Albert Miller says they are in the process of picking more athletes to participate at the Melanesian Games and also the Oceania Championships in Australia next month.

Miller says the competitions will serve as a great build up for national team athletes before August's South Pacific Games in Samoa.
