SOME of Fiji's untapped talent are willing to walk over the edge to be a winner.
Athletics Fiji's new weekly club competition is drawing a lot of interest, especially with the young ones.
Children as young as five years are sweating it out every Saturday in Suva.
To help them get into the groove, former champions like Jone Delai, Gabriel Qoro and Sainiana Tukana have been lending a helping hand.
The idea is to build a better platform for the budding athletes, most of whom are not elite reps, and at the same time helping Athletics Fiji build a brighter future.
"It's about nurturing the kids and giving them the right training," former Fiji athletics rep Malakai Veisamasama said.
"It's about preparing them mentally, physically and spiritually.
"By doing that at such a young age gives these kids a real lift, an impression that stays with them for long and helps them work on their sporting dream."
Veisamasama is head coach of Olympus club, the side making the headlines in recent weeks with several of their athletes winning their events.
"It's a two-year plan," he said.
Veisamasama said most of his club members had never even made their school athletics teams.
However, he went on to add that with the exposure they were getting every week was helping some students "knock on the doors of selection" in the lead-up to the Chow and Coke Games.
Students from Ratu Kadavulevu School, Lelean, Assemblies of God, Nasinu and Marist are members of the Olympus club.
Veisamasama said the introduction of the club weekly meet was a step in the right direction for Athletics Fiji.
Olympus club members are totally committed to the cause, And why not, check out their motto: "If you think training is tough, try losing".
