The only sport he had set his eyes on when he was young was snooker.
And he has never regretted that and has now set his aim high to beat top players in the country.
Sahil Prasad, 17, was among the snooker players contesting for the top spots in the third ranking tournament of the Fiji Billiards and Snooker Association in Suva over the weekend.
His father, Yogen Prasad, was also a former national champion and his son is now following his footsteps.
The sixth former of Suva Sangam College said he was inspired to play at young age as his father usually practices the game at home where they have a pool table.
“I started playing at 12 and since then I have loved every bit of it especially taking part in local snooker competitions,” Prasad said.
“My main aim is to do a century break,this is having a total score of 147 points which is the highest score in any snooker game.
“With the help of my dad, I am sure I will be able to do it and I am working hard in improving every time I play so I can achieve this aim.
At the moment, the Merchants Club player highest score is 59 points.
He also wants to create a different standard of snooker in the country and he is slowly going towards achieving this aim after winning his first national tournament at the age of 15.
Prasad is currently playing in the Premier grade in the local snooker competitions.
