Jan 22, 2020 Sports Comments Off on Sixth KARES Caribbean Fitness Challenge Event #1 revealed as registration closes
A potentially exciting and riveting 6th annual Kares Caribbean Fitness Challenge, under the theme: ‘Bring Out The Beast In You’ is set to unfold at the National Park Tarmac in just over two weeks time, Sunday February 9th.
With record prize monies to be awarded to the top five male and female athletes in equal amounts, the first place being $500,000 sponsored by Lotus Hardware under the Kares Group of Companies apart from a participation fee for every athlete, it’s all to compete for.
The organisers, Guyana Fitness Games have not yet released the names of the competitors after the registration date ended, January 17th but based on reports, there will be a very competitive field inclusive of five-time defending male champion, Dillon ‘The Beast’ Mahadeo.
A new female champion is expected to be crowned as 2019 winner; Surinamese Ava Zalman might not be able to make the trip to Guyana which means that the front runners for the number one spot are 2018 winner Delice Adonis and Semonica Duke. Athletes are also expected form Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Lucia and Jamaica.
Meanwhile, event #1 has been announced and would be contested on the morning of February 9th from 06:30hrs, registration commencing half hour earlier.
With a time cap of 30-minutes, athletes would be involved in a one mile odd object carry (20lbs, 40lbs); 75 overhead squats (55lbs, 75lbs) and cap it off with a one mile run.
A few hours to recover and then it’ll be on to the afternoon session from 13:00hrs where fans would be able to join all the action for a fee of $1000.
The 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place athletes would receive $400,000, $300,000, $200,000 and $100,000, respectively.
There will also be a competition for the Fittest Teens in Guyana which will attract youths between the ages of 13-17 years old, girls and boys. (Franklin Wilson)
