Honore and his SL Benfica were
crowned champions of the Portugal

made a successful protest appeal against
the win stating there was a technical
error at the last point which was upheld
by the Portugal Volleyball Federation
According the Honore, the decision
to replay the match was made on Tues-
day afternoon and players were forced
to cancel their respective travel plans
back to their homes.
Honore said the decision of the fed-

ers who were also physically tired after
the long season.
However, yesterday's come-from-
behind, four-set victory 25-27, 25-19,
25-13, 25-22 removed any ill feelings
from his clubmates, who had the oppor-

beaten 21-25, 18-25, 25-22, 23-25 by SC
Espinho, the 18-time league winners in
the second match to set up the decider.
Benfica advanced to this year's finals
after ending the six-team Champi-
onship play-offs with 39 points from
nine wins and one loss, five points
ahead of Espinho.
Athletes of both the Rainbow
Warriors Triathlon Club and
Team Hope visited Tobago this
past weekend in preparation for
the Neal & Massy Rainbow Cup

promising 18-year-old, Matthew
Chung of Tobago. Last year's
winner of the sprint distance and
Carifta double gold medallist
Mark London was also on hand
to support the Warriors. London,
however, will not attempt to
defend his title as he is set for
an alternate event in Trinidad on
the same day. His father, James,
however, will don RWTC's
colours in the relay event.
The Warriors will be getting
another tune-up on Sunday
when the T&T Triathlon Feder-

Falomi Marcano of First Citizens
will be aiming to win her third con-
secutive title today in the Aerobics
Burnout of the Carifin Games at the
Central Bank Plaza from 5 pm.
Many of the participants gave their
opinion on today's event, such as last
year's runner-up Kereem Hislop of
First Citizens. He stated: "Yes I am
feeling the excitement, but I am not
in the same fit condition as last year
but I will be putting my best foot for-
ward." Another competitor, Adona
Joseph, said: "I am a bit nervous, but
I have always liked aerobics and I came
out of a folk dancing background, aer-
obics is the only avenue right now I
have to express my passion for dance."
Next on the Carifin Games schedule
is cricket, football and all fours at the
Republic Bank sports facility in
Barataria on Saturday from 10 am.
