Waisake Nakavu of Nadi has set his sights on becoming the next Banuve Tabakaucoro.
This was after he won the 2015 FMF Chow Games Under-14 Boys 100 metres final at the ANZ Stadium, Suva, last Saturday
The 14-year-old, who attends Namaka Public Primary School, clocked 12.01 seconds, but knows the immense task ahead if he wants to improve that time.
“My source of inspiration is Pacific sprint champion Banuve,”he said.
“I love running, that is something I have been training hard and given the opportunity to participate in Chow Games has helped me improve a lot because the competition is really tough.
“But I know that in order to get to where I want to be, I need to work hard and I still have a long way to go to be like Banuve.
“I’m not that happy with my time because I know that I can do better, so preparation for me starts as soon as the Chow Games ends
“I will be going to Marist Brothers High School next year and I really can’t wait to start.”
The Nawaka, Nadi native was grateful for the support of his family and coaches.
“My father Esava Nakavu supports me as well as my coaches and I don’t think I would be competing and winning without them.
“The games getting tougher every year, but I have welcomed it and it has pushed me to be the best I can and I can only go up from here,” he said.
