The Aishalton based Romenex Exploration Ltd. Guyana has stepped on board with tangible support for one of Guyana’s budding female powerlifters, Tineisha Toney, who is set to represent the Golden Arrowhead at the
upcoming NAPF/Caribbean and NAPF/FESUPO Powerlifting Championships in Orlando Florida, next month.
Toney, Guyana’s 57kg Sub-Junior sensation and one of four females on Team Guyana’s 22-member contingent for the July 3-8 championships, was born in the village of Aishalton making it an easy decision for Romenex Exploration Ltd. to support her.
Director Marshall Mintz said he was happy to learn that the small village had produced a national star in the form of Toney who has also been excelling in her academics.
”We are more than pleased to be associated with this budding star in her quest to bring glory to her nation and by extension herself and village. We wish her all the best in next month’s competition.”
Toney is excited and rearing to bring home the bacon on her maiden international tour and is hoping her performance adds up to Guyana winning back the team Championship which they have won in 2010 and 2012.
In the preliminary nominations to date, the confident athlete will be coming up against nine (9) other athletes in the Women Open Raw Classic from Ecuador, USA, Mexico, Costa Rica, Trinidad and Tobago and Puerto Rico.
In the Women Junior Raw/Classic show, she will be up against USA’s Emily Gardner. In the Women Open Equipped she will take on athletes from Venezuela, Brazil, Ecuador and the USA.
In the Women Sub Junior Equipped, Toney will be up against two USA lifters, while in the Women Open Equipped she will be up against four other athletes and she is the lone athlete in the Women Sub Junior Equipped.
