Ready for the fun

Social Share

WHEELCHAIR competitor Wesley Worrell is all ready for today’s NATION Funathlon.
Yesterday he was among hundreds who turned up at the Nation Publishing Company’s Fontabelle office to register for the event which comprises a 10K Fun Walk and Fun Run.
Worrell was riding his handcycle, given to him by American paraplegic Bob Weiland six years ago, which he uses to exercise and keep fit. The only problem, which was easily solved, was that the registration form had to be delivered to him on the outside, since the bike was too big to get through the door.
Worrell, a regular and popular competitor at the annual event, said the cycle had greatly prepared him for today’s big event, in which he will be competing in his wheelchair.
Organizers were expecting a bumper crowd at the Bay Street Esplanade for the early morning events which had attracted a large number of schools and private sector companies.
Here, hours before the fun race, Worrell getting in shape on his handcycle.
