Musclemania ups the tempo

HARARE – Musclemania Zimbabwe has upped their tempo by availing a VW Polo vehicle as the top prize in this year’s contest set for August 10 at Ochi City.

Last year, a Honda Fit was up for grabs and was won by reigning Musclemania Victor Hungwe during the inaugural contest.

In 2011, the same organisers then with the Mashonaland Bodybuilding Association got a franchise to host Mr Iron Man where Vincent Kandiyero drove home in a Toyota Funcargo.

Tofara Moyo, one of the coordinators of the Musclemania contest said the stage is set for next month’s explosive showdown.

“Everything is now set for the big stage,” Moyo told the Daily News yesterday.

“We have received confirmations from Botswana, both seniors and their junior counterparts led by seasoned campaigner Champion Mbewe.

“Locally, the cream of Zimbabwean bodybuilders including the defending champion Victor Hungwe, Vincent who just retained his Iron Man title and a number of top athletes assured us that they will be available to contest at this year’s event.”

The prejudge ceremony will take place at the Scorpion Gym (Queensdale) owned by Moyo while the main event is slated for the evening at Ochi City off Domboshava Road in the capital.

The country’s other private bodybuilding show, All Africa Olympia is said to be off the calendar this year leaving Musclemania to be the only show outside the national calendar left in the year.

“This year its going to be a bit tough and we are expecting a record attendance because its the only big show that is left in the year, everybody will come out and try his luck and I’m really optimistic that this will be another success story,” added Moyo.

“We have tried to make a difference in the lives of bodybuilders by awarding top prizes because we have the whole year to sit down and plan thereby giving our sponsors enough time to incorporate us in their budgets.

“Soon after this contest we will go straight into planning for next year’s contest and that’s our only secret in hosting successful shows.”
