Lindeners shine at inaugural “Skip To My Lou” National Championships
It was all about the students from Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) at the inaugural National “Skip To My Lou” Championships on Thursday at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
Adrielle Wilson, who attended the World Jump Rope Championship and Camp earlier this year in Florida, along with Shavin Greene, excelled and it was no surprise that he carted off the first-place trophy and prize in the secondary schools’ “Last Man Standing” category.
In that category, the skipper who goes the longest time without messing up their routine wins.
Wilson out-jumped third-place Shalannis Williams, who clocked 18 minutes 16 seconds and President’s College’s Revan Le Fleur (second place) who stopped at 22 minutes 20 seconds.
Meanwhile, Janaee Greene of Regma Primary School jumped for 17 minutes 24 seconds to beat out Christianburg Primary’s Shaneeza Outar (17 minutes 16 seconds) and Shazim Hamid (eight minutes 20 seconds) for the first-place trophy and prize. In the primary schools team category (fusion), Regma Primary School amassed 135 points for first place while Christianburg had 127 for second and Region Two’s Kabakaburi Primary School, 88 points for third.
For the secondary schools, Mackenzie High School was first with 148 points, Christianburg second with 134, and Wakapao (Region Two) third with 118 points.
In the individual freestyle competition, Wilson was the top secondary freestyler while Greene again took top spot in the primary category. The Championships attracted more than 100 students from across the country. The participants were selected based on participation in the annual Mashramani competition.
