He has conquered the best local soil has to offer in the competitive fitness industry and is now aiming to be the best a notch higher, the Caribbean level. This is the plan of the reigning Kares Guyana Fitness Challenge champion, Dillon Mahadeo following his all conquering performance on Sunday evening at the National Park.
The 22 year-old athlete who has already competed in Trinidad and Barbados with encouraging success and has also represented Guyana at Weightlifting said he is aware that he has to work even harder to conquer his peers in the Region.
At the Inaugural CrossFit 12-12-12 Throwdown in Soca Land – Trinidad &Tobago he won bronze in 2016 and took silver at the Island Fit Games in the Land of the Flying Fish, Barbados in 2017.
Speaking with the media following his domination of the opposition, including long time training partner Timothy Mc Andrew who ended with 408 points to Mahadeo’s perfect 500 points, which came as a result of him winning all five individual events, Guyana’s Fitness King said that coming into this year’s competition he tried to work on all his weak areas but is still some way from being perfect.
”But I have to keep working just as hard and try to maintain a level and standard that would be competitive throughout the region.”
Mahadeo noted that the completion has become more difficult but he has been able to adapt to new training methods which allows him to keep in line and relevant with the sport.
He expressed gratitude to a number of persons and his sponsor for helping to fuel his winning ways: “My training partners, I’m happy to win alongside Timothy Mc Andrew, he has been pushing real hard over the years and he pushes me as well. To my sponsors Fitness Express and all the people in CrossFit592, they have all played a part and I’ll just keep pushing and try to be among the best in the Caribbean.” (F. Wilson)
