Barbadian becomes Mr Caribbean International – 1st such victory in decade of contest
Four hundred metre hurdler and fitness specialist, Alexander Forde of Barbados, walked away with the title of Mr. Caribbean International on Saturday October 6, 2012.
It’s been said that Forde bears a striking resemblance to legendary Jamaican Olympian, Usain Bolt. Just like Bolt, Forde ensured that he delivered as he won the competition’s rigorous fitness challenge with ease.
Forde flew the Barbadian flag high as he secured the island’s first victory in the 10-year history of the competition. Standing with Forde in the top three were 1st runner-up Andre Walker (Jamaica) and 2nd runner-up Nathaniel Goodwin (USA). Walker was also awarded with the prize for Best Physique.
