No hype at Classic


No hype at Classic

The increased numbers of regional competitors and their immense success this year confirmed the Darcy Beckles Classic as a Caribbean showpiece.

However, the absence of such local stars as Shakira Doughlin, Hadley Hoyte and Vanessa Jones and the subpar performances from Nicholas Smith and Tyrell Force, who had represented Barbados at CAC in Mexico, saw the 11th edition lacking the fire of previous years.

Thankfully, Suriname’s Wendel Setropawiro, who captured both the bodybuilding Open and Invitational as well as the constantly improving bikini open champion Andrea Cumberbatch and challenger Lynette Thompson, brought some sparks to the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.

In addition, while IFBB Elite Pro Lorenzo Leeuwe did not have a name to match many of the previous guest posers, he showed greater form and executed a routine that gave the fans some excitement on the night. (KB)
