Rahil Prasad won the Pillay Garments Champion versus Champion tournament after beating Praneel Singh 5-2 at the Fiji Club in Suva on Sunday.

Speaking to SUNsports, Prasad said competition was tough and challenging as well.

“The semi-final clash against Nitesh Chand was tough since he was a very experienced player,” the 22-year-old said.

“We had a strong encounter and I managed to handle the pressure. To have experienced players like Praneel and Viliame Umu around competing is good for the sport as we the young ones are able to learn from them.

“I thank the Lord for his guidance and having my father Yogendra Prasad for support has been a blessing.”

Prasad said the next bigger challenge for him is when he will defend the title next year.

“It’s going to be tough but I need to challenge young people to try out the sport and take it seriously because you don’t know it may take you to places you don’t dream of. So for me to win this tournament is just the beginning.”
