Update: 4:09PM THE desire and expectation to win drove 14-year-old Apenisa Keresoni in a nail-biting finish of the sub-junior boys 1500m at the Suva Grammar School inter-house competition at the ANZ Stadium.

The eldest of six siblings representing Red House, Keresoni said that while he was neck to neck to his closest rival from Blue House, his focus was always on the tape where the race had to end.

Keresoni who hails from Naroi, Moala in Lau is encouraging athletes out there not to lose hope when it came to situations like that.

He said his training schedules began in the morning at home and in the afternoons at school.

He hopes to improve his performance going into the zone meet.

He dedicated his win to his family and thanked them for their support.
