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. Staged under the theme “Top Guns”, the competition celebrated its tenth anniversary at the Hedonism II resort in Negril, Jamaica.
It appears as if the masses knew it right from the start. Not only was Forde crowned the overall winner, but he was also voted the favourite in the Peoples’ Choice competition. 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 prizefor Best Physique.
Forde walks away with several prizes including $2,500 USD and a 5-night stay at Hedonism II resort.
