Victorious Regiment commander leads the way in Inter-Services Games
Showing leadership qualities in a road race, Regiment commanding officer Lt Col Michael Foster-Brown came home first ahead of his fellow colleagues and competitors from the Bermuda Police Service, Customs and Bermuda Fire Service.
In the Inter-Service Games on Friday, the Regiment chief was one of a number of winners from Warwick Camp. In the same four-mile road race run, second place went to Regiment Sergeant Major James Self.
Private Dominique Mayo won the bicycle time trial, while Lance Corporal Mariko Iris was a road running winner in a race at Flatts over six miles.
Pte Dominique Mayo took the honours in a bicycle time trial and Regiment teams triumphed in the relay race, tug o'war and volleyball.
Lt Col Foster-Brown said: “The Regiment prides itself on a high standard of physical fitness and helping our soldiers to achieve what they never thought they could.
“Getting and keeping fit is something all our soldiers benefit from and it leads to healthier citizens as well as better soldiers.
“I am proud of what our soldiers achieved over the games, individually and in teams — they are all a credit to the Regiment and to its training.”
Corporal Michael Williams said: “The Regiment did really well — it's a great way to keep fit and there's a lot of team building. It's also good to take part in sports with the police and other services because we work very closely with them and it all helps to create bonds.”
The Regiment is continuing its drive to attract recruits and, in a statement, said: “A Regiment career offers recruits opportunities to travel, acquire skills useful in civilian life, test themselves to their limits and competitive rates of pay, as well as a $300 bounty for new volunteers.”
