Premyum puts trust in Mahadeo for Caribbean Fitness Challenge
Reigning four-time National Cross Fit champion, Dillon Mahadeo, has received the backing of Premyum, the flagship brand of Associated Packers Industry, for the Kares Caribbean Fitness Challenge, slated for February 9 at the National Park.
Premyum has a wide line of food products, ranging from Canola Oil, Flour, Soybean Oil and corn.
At the simple ceremony held Saturday at API’s office on Sherriff Street, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Marissa Bujan, stated they are elated to fully support the stalwart of the sport in Guyana and hopes it assists him in winning a fifth consecutive title.
Bujan noted it will be strong test for Mahadeo given more foreign competitors are coming to challenge him for the title, but she is confident the ‘Man of Steel’ has what it takes to win.
It is understood 33 athletes have registered, 10 of which are women. Nine athletes are expected from Suriname, three from Trinidad and Tobago and one from Barbados.
“I appreciate the Premyum line of products coming on board; this sponsorship will go a long way in helping me; as athletes we have expenses and this helps a lot,” Mahadeo stated.
He added he is most excited to defend his title against a higher level of competition.
“I really love competing in my backyard and having these guys come over and competing here will be something quite near to my heart. It will be a special competition since I have competed with these guys before and they will bring good competition. I am really looking forward to defend my title.”
The fitness guru further stated that since one of the foreign competitors coming to Guyana is a Cross Fit Games qualifier, it will push him to be the best the version of himself.
Ahead of his return to Reebok Cross Fit Games, slated for Wisconsin in the United States of America from July 29-August 2, Mahadeo says this will be a great test to his readiness for the pinnacle of world Cross Fit.
The Kares Fitness Challenge has an expansive structure with $500,000 going towards first place. Second to fifth will be rewarded $400,000, $300,000, $200,000 and $100,000 respectively.
