West Coast ‘Iron’ champions
Keon Young and Mishika Jules are the Iron Man and Iron Woman respectively of Colony Club.
They won the Iron Man and Iron Woman competition which took place at the West Coast hotel yesterday. Young defeated Kieron Cox and Dave Boxhill who came second and third respectively. Jules relegated Janelle Winifred and Charmaine Hinkson into second and third place respectively.
The competition involved swimming, push-ups and a hotel run. According to general manager of the hotel, Gayle Talma, the competition was part of their Health And Wellness Week.
“We decided this year rather than have a staff party to hold a Health And Wellness Week. It has been well supported by the staff so it might be an annual event,” Talma told Barbados TODAY.
The Iron Man champion said he was proud to have won the competition.
“The swim and push-ups were easy. The run was the most difficult part of the competition,” Young said.
Young, a member of the water-sports staff, added he was proud to have won something for his department.
A table tennis competition was also part of the activities and this was won by Darren Alleyne.
Jules, who plays netball for Unity Stars in the second division of the Barbados Netball Association, said the competition was part of her fitness programme
“I am into fitness plus I am active as a netball player so I was happy to take part in the competition. Now that I have won if there is a competition next year I will be back next year to defend my title,” a beaming Jules said.
