MVP Sports brands Mahadeo, Adonis for Kares Caribbean Fitness Games
MVP Sports, the athletic footwear and apparel store located at Giftland Mall, has thrown its support behind its two brand ambassadors – Delice Adonis and Dillon Mahadeo – once again.
Last year, the store supported the elite Guyanese duo on their maiden quest to the Reebok CrossFit Games in Madison, Wisconsin, the first time Guyana was represented at the prestigious games.
MVP Sports is now outfitting Adonis and Mahadeo in Under Armour and Nike apparel for the sixth annual Kares Caribbean Fitness Challenge on Sunday (February 9) at the National Park.
The Management of the sports store is backing the duo to come good and emerge victorious in their respective category, as they come up against a field of seasoned local and Caribbean competitors.
The champion athlete will pocket $500,000, while second to fifth will be rewarded with $400,000, $300,000, $200,000 and $100,000 respectively.
Every athlete will be given a participation award of $15,000, compliments of Kares Engineering and Lotus Hardware. Athletes over the age of 30 will be given $100,000 (first), $50,000 (second) and $30,000 (third).
Additionally, 15 teens will battle in the Under-17 category. The top three teen athletes will receive $30,000, $25,000 and $20,000 respectively.
Tickets, costing G$1,000 each, are on sale at Kares CrossFit, Genesis Fitness Gym on Durban Street and Fitness Express on Sheriff Street. Children under 10 will be admitted free.
