Chimuchenga on cloud nine

HARARE - Newly crowned Mr Ironman Isaac “Sugar” Chimuchenga is on cloud nine after winning the title on Saturday at the Odyssey Centre in Kadoma.

Chimuchenga beat of the challenge from defending champion Vincent Kandiero, who came in second place at the well attended contest. 

It was a sweet victory for Chimuchenga as he retained the title he had last won 2011 when the contest was held in Harare.

“It is a great feeling to win back my title and with me is where this title belongs,” said Chimuchenga.

“I think I was looking sharp in all areas unfortunately I didn’t look around to see how the other guys fared because I only had myself to beat.

“Viny (Kandiero) provided stiff competition but deep down I knew I had won it.”

Kandiero was disappointed with the result but promised to bounce back at next month’s Musclemania contest.

“I thought I did well to exhibit the best figure both at prejudge and main contest but in every competition the judges make the decisions,” said a dejected Kandiero.

“I wasn’t sitting on the judges’ bench but competing hence I can’t falter them for tonight’s outcome.

“You win some and lose some; that’s the name of the game. I will go back to serious business and prepare for August’s Musclemania and hope to place first at the contest.”

Noah Dzvokora came third while Brighton Mazikana, Tapiwa Chibota and Blessing Nyapimbi completed the top six positions.

In the junior category, first place went to Reginald Pasara, who was followed by Paul Matimbe while Dalvin Page, Terence Nyoni, Emmanuel Ndapasuwa and Tapiwa Sibanda also made it into the top six.

The male fitness figure title went to Godwin Mhaka while Everson Maverendi and Tinashe Chigudu finished in second and third place respectively.

The usual disappointment of the night came in the women’s category where defending champion Christina Matange was the only contestant.
