Minister De Weever leads by examplePOSTED: 02/3/14 12:16 PM
St. Maarten – If there was ever a debate to see which minister in the government of St Maarten is the fittest, then Cornelius de Weever would secure the majority of the votes, though Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams would be a tough competitor for the top honors. As recent as yesterday, Minister De Weever participated in one of the three mini triathlons organized by Tri Sports.
Dressed in a black close fitting outfit, the minister – part of a three-man team by the name of Blush – was able to swim, ride and run the specified course to the best of his ability. The accumulated times have not been made available to the press yet but it was clear that during the swimming leg, De Weever was not the last one out of the water, nor was he last in the cycling and the running event.
Minister De Weever participated in one of the three triathlons, showing that even someone in his capacity can be competitive – something he has been doing for a number of years.
