Paul has smaller field to shave in NACAC 10K

When the race took place last year, Paul – a barber by profession, groomed the field in 32 minutes, 21.04 seconds. However, this time he has only Vincentians to contend with, as regional participation is almost bald.

His toughest competitor should come from Junior “Stone” Ashton who placed third in last year’s race. Then, Ashton clocked 33 minutes 54.02 seconds.

Paul and Ashton had sandwiched Trinidad and Tobago’s Denzil Ramirez, who finished second in 32 minutes 37.02 seconds.

While Paul is defending his title, last year’s female winner – Trinidad and Tobago’s Tonya Nero sits out the Vincentian experience this year.

However, Grenadian Kenisha Pascal who was second in 2012 will complete the duo of overseas entries.

Apart from the absence of the Trinidadians, there will be no appearance of those from the Dominican Republic who propped up the event last year.

Sunday’s road race is set to get going at 3 p.m. at Prospect and finishes in the vicinity of the RBTT Bank and CIBC First Caribbean International Bank on Halifax Street. (RT)
