In the latest CariFin news, things are set to come to a head this Sunday May 26, 2013, as CariFin Games will make its final stop at Sevilla Golf Course in Couva for the cross country race. The action is expected to heat up as still unbeaten Simon Kalechstein of RBC will be aiming for his 1st claim of the coveted cross country title. Kalechstein seem set to have a battle of epic proportions if he is to win the Cross Country title at Sevilla Golf Course with the return of Nikosi Mc Leish.
This will not be easy though, as other top contenders in search of points towards the overall winners of the series title, have already signaled their intentions to put forward their best efforts.
In what is perhaps the showcase event on the final day of the CariFin games, the Cross Country will see the return of Nikosi Mc Leish also of RBC after a 2 years hiatus due to injuries. It is a positive Mc Leish who returns to the games with the promise; “We are going down Sevilla with running confidence as never before!”
Other major developments in the walking event have caused CariFin Fans to wonder: Can D’arbasie and Harikissoon make it 2 in a row? Can Cadogan surprise all and capture the female cross country walk title?
In the lady’s events Wendy D’arbasie of CBTT continues with her goals of achieving the fe
male cross country title for a 2nd year and maintaining her unbeaten status during the games. D’arbasie asserts, “I would be putting my best foot forward, it is not an easy race, but with the present competition I expect to win.”
Another milestone awaits Harikissoon on Sunday at Sevilla in the walking event as he tries to take two titles in a row as well as continue with his unblemished performance. “I am ready and I feel good about retaining the male walking title.”
Cherylin Cadogan won 2 of the 3 previous running events and that included the Chancellor Hill so it is expected this weekend’s event at Sevilla golf course should be of little challenge to her with the present competition. One major concern though continues to be the Jamaican competitors who have won this event for the past two years. Current Champion of the event Paulette Thompson has already signaled she would not be returning to defend her title. She has been replaced by another strong contender Catherine Stewart.
As yet another successful year of competition winds down best wishes go out to all competitors and the hope is that Sunday’s event is biggest and best ever.
