Teon Sancho

Jones is Mr Physique
By Faizool Deo
WINDEROJU Gym (WG) of Berbice continued their dominance in the Guyana Amateur Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation’s Mr Physique novice competition and Jermin Jones copped the 2006 title at the West Demerara Secondary School in Vreed-en-Hoop on Sunday night.
When the competition was held last year it was Sherman Haynes from the same Berbice gym who was victorious.
Jones was not just ripped, but he had proportions which gave the judges an easy task in the making their decision.
Prior to that competition, Anthony Thom from the Interline Fitness Gym emerged the 2005 Mr West Demerara winner (the competition was not held last year), while Melissa Roberts from Fitness Paradise Gym copped the body fitness title.
In the West Demerara competition, Thom’s cuts were huge and he made light work of the other competitors, winning the West Demerara lightweight competition, with New Millennium’s Selwyn Grogan finishing second and Interline’s Brijmohan Surjuballi third.
There were no participants for the middleweight category, while Prem Persaud was the lone competitor in the heavyweight division and proved no match for Thom in the overall Mr West Demerara competition.
The Body Fitness competition saw the contestants being judged from a whole suit and fitness round. Finishing second place was Tomicka Pellew from the Upper Demerara Gym, winner of the Fitness competition last year, while third place went to Setra O’Selma, also from the Upper Demerara Gym.
The Mr Physique competition opened with the lightweight division which was won by Alfred London of Interline, with WG participant Alston Lancaster finishing second and Ronier Caesar from Buddy’s Gym third.
WG participants made a clean sweep of the middleweight division, with Devon Boatswain finishing ahead of Teon Sancho and Jermain McAlmont respectively, while in the heavyweight, it was Jones first, Sidney James from Body Shapers second, and WG’s Nicholas Blair third.
The crowd support was excellent, with the ladies being especially vocal as the builders, particularly in the middleweight category, entertained them with various antics.
The three winners of the various divisions then met for the compulsory posing before taking part in a pose-down. Jones finished ahead of London and Boatswain respectively.
The main sponsors of the event included Andre Poonai Investments, Anral Shipping, Buddy’s Gym, Cards Express, Fat Boy’s Discount Store, Mel Sankies and Payless Variety Store.

Identifying Gill Lineage - Descendants of Sancho

Soliciting Information - Gill of Guyana and Barbados.  I am really focusing on the Sancho lineage. I believe it's best to chat about the Gill people from the migration from Barbados to Demerara to the known members of Buxton and Friendship and thus to Golden Grove, Nabaclis and Haslington and their movement beyond Guyana in the twentieth century. I need to be enlightened.  I am soliciting information on the lineage of the kinship of GILL. I need to identify the Sancho ancestor of the members of the kinship of Gill, mentioned below. I am referring to Gill of Buxton-Friendship and their off springs - Arthur Gill and his descendants – of Golden Grove-Nabaclis.  The known members of this Gill kinship of Gill includes; Susan Elizabeth Gill died on Sunday, November 27, 1938.  Ms. Gill was 91 years old.
