John Harper predicted he would run the tough but scenic West Indies Lab 5-Mile Road Race in 46 minutes, and that's exactly what he did.
The effort netted him first place in the event, which ranks the runner who runs the race closest to the time they predict.
Teddy Seymour was second with a time of 54:16 (predicted 54:16) and Aden Stevens was third in 40:30 (predicted 41:00).
Bridget Klein won the award for being the fastest runner in the race, as she crossed the line in 33:54.
TORTOLA - Two British Virgin Islands bowlers are among 240 bowlers worldwide set to compete in the Professional Bowling Association World Championships in Las Vegas starting today.
Mervin Hastings and Adrian McCoy will be the first two PBA international members from the territory at the event.
"We are obviously looking for victories, but we're coming up against the best bowlers in the world - like Jason Belmonte and Pete Weber - so it's going to be a tough challenge, but we are looking forward to it," Hastings said. "My average is in the high 190s and we occasionally get in the 200s. But up there, you are going to have to be in the mid 220s, 230s to be competitive and make it into the qualifying matches, then into the ESPN television finals."
