Excitement mounts for CariFin Games Aerobics Burnout
Can Joseph repeat; or will a new champion emerge?
The excitement mounts as the CariFin Games Aerobics Burnout date approaches. Representatives from the ten participating institutions and their supporters, on Wednesday May 18, 2016 at 5pm, will take over the Central Bank Plaza at the Eric Williams Financial Complex Port of Spain, for a grand exhibition to determine the fittest person in the CariFin universe. With this being the fifth competitive event in the Games series so far, the stakes are pitched very high. Teams recognize that this event presents the ultimate fitness challenge and experience; and to not secure the gold in this particular competition, will make any attempt to secure an overall win very shaky from this point on.
So with bated breath the financial services sector anxiously awaits tomorrow where for a little over an hour participants will subject their bodies to high paced battle of toing and froing, jumping, sliding, squatting, keeping in sync with the beat of the music and the instructors’ movements.
The popular winner for 2015 competition Adona Joseph of Sagicor is expected to defend her title, which some say she won rather easily.
What will be interesting tomorrow is to see whether this year’s hopefuls are fit, ready and able to challenge Joseph’s attempt at keeping this prestigious title of “last person standing”. Whether there be an epic upset seeing Joseph dethroned is anyone’s guess. Whatever the final results tomorrow, the display of fitness, coordination and endurance will definitely be worth seeing.
The big guns in the ring no doubt will come from Guardian Group who has had a winner in this event before. Also all eyes will be on Central Bank who, having sat out the last two years, has returned to the Games hungrier than ever before. Central Bank has a very good shot at stealing the show.
Not to be forgotten, too, is Republic Bank and their 400-strong contingent. Republic Bank, the overall leaders in game points to date, has had a record breaking run in this year’s Games. With a proven history of “firsts” in this competition, the odds are stacked in their favor. Someone from this camp can cop the title, adding the aerobics burnout to their bags of wins.
Keep an eye out for First Citizens, also a recent winner and strong contender, who we are sure has plans of their own to lift the crown off Joseph’s head.
In little over an hour this event is usually settled; and with this year’s level of participation at the highest ever recorded, it is proving to be a competition just to get into tomorrow’s event. We expect approximately 300 participants tomorrow.
CariFin Games encourages all aerobics aficionados, fans, supporters to come out, support your team mates and enjoy probably the most exciting competition and the best display of fitness, dexterity and endurance in the CariFin Games series to date.
