Blenman wins Chancellor Challenge

 Rashad Blenman of Guardian Group returned to win the third athletic event of CariFin Games, the Chancellor Challenge last week. 

 Blenman  completed the course in 14 minutes 50.7 seconds as he overtook First Citizens’ John Donaldson  (15.05.1)  while Sagicor’s Jean-Marc De Boulet finished third in  15.35.3 .

It was the penultimate race of the CariFin Games  four-race schedule, and after missing the second stage  entitled the Green Mile, Bledman returned to impress on the Hill,  late in the Chancellor Challenge  to overtake  Donaldson, who bolted out to a  comfortable lead but failed to maintain it.

“Even though I was way behind, I know eventually with patience and execution I would pull it of,” Bledman said of his victory.

Deodath Harrikissoon of First Citizens and Lee Hay of CITI are unbeaten so far in this four-part athletic series. The duo would  very much  like to remain unbeaten. In the female walk race, Natasha David of Republic Bank enjoyed her second win of the series.

“My training has been harder this year. I expected more of a challenge but it was not there.”  Harrikissoon said after the race.
