CARICOM 10K winners

ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- Trinidad and Tobago’s Tonya Nero won the women’s leg of the CARICOM 10K Road Race for the third time in a row, when the event was held in St John’s, Antigua on Sunday.

Guyanese national Cleveland Forde excelled in the men’s section, clocking 34 minutes, 52 seconds.

Ten countries from across the region converged on Antigua and Barbuda for this tenth staging of the CARICOM 10K race. The event, which is held annually to signal the start of the CARICOM heads of government conference, featured some 70 athletes who vied for the prestigious Secretary General’s and Chairman’s Trophies. Key objectives of the event include reinforcing the value of health as a cornerstone for regional development and the promotion of integration through sport.

Nero made it to the finish line in just over 38 minutes to claim the winning trophy along with a cash prize. Second place went to Julien Josiah of Guyana, while Trinidadian Janel Nedd copped the third position.

For the men, Forde was followed home by Elliot Mason of Antigua and Barbuda in 34 minutes 59 seconds, while Grenadian Radix Graham was third in 35 minutes 17 seconds.
