Wins for Blackett and Pipe in 5K
JEROME BLACKETT and Carlie Pipe have done it again.
Barbados’ top distance runners gave justification for their big billing yesterday after winning the men’s and women’s categories at the Co-operators General Insurance 5K series’ third leg on the Six Roads circuit.
The victories were the second in a row for both Pipe and Blackett, who dominated the series last week en route to first-place finishes on the Bridgetown circuit a week ago.
Blackett came home in a somewhat pedestrian time of 17 minutes and 35 seconds, while Pipe, who was ninth overall, was the first female home after clocking 19:55.
Pierre Stanford (17:38) and Oein Josiah (18:08) were second and third respectively, while Pipe’s training partner Elizabeth Renondeau (20:15) finished second in the women’s category. (JM)
