Dandrade wins Suriname’s Bigi Broki Wacka 10K

Trinidad and Tobago-based Guyanese athlete Lionel D’Anrade got 2018 off to a great start for his homeland flying the Golden Arrowhead high in Suriname over the weekend. He copped his fifth win in the “Bigi Broki Wacka 10K” road race finishing first out of 389 participants in a time of 38 minutes 19 seconds.
This was the 38-year-old’s fifth win in the annual event after participating in the competition for the past decade, finishing second on a couple of occasions behind the likes of former National Champions, Cleveland Forde, Cleveland Thomas and Kelvin Johnson.

The last time D’Anrade won the event was two years ago (2016), however the seasoned veteran failed to defend his title last year finishing fifth. He rebounded nicely this time around in the absence of Forde and Thomas.
