It was a proud moment for Kennol Narayan after he won the full marathon event in the 2017 Island Chill Suva Marathon at Albert Park yesterday.

The 23 year-old, Rakiraki native clocked a personal best time of 2hours: 55minutes.

“It feels great to win the full marathon event and securing my personal best was very satisfying,” the Suva Marathon Club member said.

“I am also grateful to my competitors for giving me the good run. It has boosted my confidence to keep pushing myself to achieve my personal best.

“This is my second year participating in the Suva Marathon. Last year I took part in the fun run which encouraged me to move up to the next level.

“I intend to train hard so I can better my time. I aim to represent Fiji in the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu in December.

“I would like to thank God for giving me the strength to be able to win and the Suva Marathon Club members for having faith in me.”
