Meet your Chase Leaders


Christina Tong.  I’m Christina, “the consultant” on The Amazing Chase across Asia.  I’m a graduate from McGill Medicine 1994 and I work as a family doctor in Montreal.  My roots are

Chinese and I have a particular love for South East Asia.  I’ve travelled extensively in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China and Indonesia and look forward to returning for a fun, competitive trip, different from anything I’ve experienced in Asia!  Together with Rob and Vincent, we will guide you through challenging situations with plenty of time to enjoy the sites,

the foods, the people and the culture.

Robert Primavesi.  I’m Rob, “the logistician” behind the challenges you will face on The Amazing Chase across Asia.  I’m the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Medical Education at McGill, so responsible for the medical school, and work as an emergency physician at the Montreal General Hospital and Montreal Children’s Hospital.  Competing in the 2007 edition of The Amazing Chase with my team The Tortoise and the Hair, I proved the adage that “slow and steady wins the race”, placing second overall.  Together with Christina and Vincent, we will guide you through the best experience of cultural immersion ever!
Vincent Poirier.  I’m Vincent, “the entertainer” on the Amazing Chase across Asia. I have an identical twin brother and I am an Aviation Medicine specialist who also works at the Montreal General Hospital as an emergency physician.  My team won the Vietnam portion of the Amazing Chase 2007 on our strength in the food challenges.  Together with Christina and Rob, I will keep you entertained as we guide you through this crazy unforgettable experience.  By the way, my 2007 race team name was “The Princess and the P”… Guess who was the Princess?!
The Experience is everything.
