Ronique Williams underlined his utter dominance by winning a third MoBay City Run overall title yesterday. It was a brilliant run from the defending two-time winner, who used his experience to win the 10-kilometre road race.

Williams' time of 36 minutes 10 seconds was too great a mountain for the other competitors, with none able to break the 40-minute barrier.

Andrew Gayle ran 41:01 seconds for second, while Carlyle Russell crossed the finish line in third place with a time of 41:20 seconds.

A jubilant Williams said the win was the most challenging of his three titles, mainly because he was tired from running another event the day before.

"This was the most difficult one of the three years that I have won; but I was strong enough and quick enough to still post a good time and win a third MoBay City Run title," he said.

The female 10K title went to Chris-Ann Lewis, who stopped the clock at 45:11 for first place, while Carlene Blagrove ran second in 47:09. Third went to Pauline Murphy in a time of 48:17.

Juliett Dinnal took the female top position in the 5K run, while Horace Burey stayed true to form in landing the men's equivalent.
