Blenman returns to win Chancellor Challenge
Rashad Blenman of Guardian Group made
an emphatic return to the CariFin Games
on May 7, capturing the male run at the
Chancellor Challenge at Lady Chancellor
The CariFin Games has a four-race sched-
ule, and after missing the second stage (Green
Mile), Blenman returned to impress on the
hill. Blenman stopped the clock in 14 minutes,
50.7 seconds, 15 seconds ahead of First Citizens
(FCB) John Donaldson (15.05.1). Jean-Marc
De Boulet of Sagicor rounded off the top
three in 15.35.3.
Although Blenman was trailing during the
race, he was confident of victory. Blenman
stated: "Even though I was way behind, I
know eventually with patience and execution
I would pull it off."
Deodath Harrikissoon of FCB and Lee Hay
of Citibank continued their impressive form,
with Harrikissoon taking the male walk event
and Hay winning the female run.
Their wins put them in a good position to
take the full series of events, especially if they
can maintain their winning form in the last
event on June 8, when the cross country event
runs off at the Sevilla Golf Course, Couva.
This is the 23rd edition of the CariFin
Games, and the main purpose of these games
is to promote health and fitness within the
financial services sector of the Caribbean.
Yesterday, the aerobics burnout took place
at the Queen's Park Savannah.
