$3 000 up for grabs in Zambia

HARARE - A top prize of $3 000 has been lined up by organisers of the inaugural Southern Africa Bodybuilding Championships to be held in Lusaka, Zambia this Saturday.

The World Fitness Federation and World Bodybuilding Federation contest is set to be hosted by the Zambia Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation (ZBBFF) at the Taj Pamodzi Hotel in Lusaka.

ZBBFF president Danny Mkandawire muted the idea of hosting a regional contest during his visit in Zimbabwe in June.

Mkandawire was in Zimbabwe attending the Mr and Ms Ironman contest which was won by Isaac “Sugar” Chimuchenga after beating reigning champion Vincent “Vince Cutter” Kandiyero in a hotly contested show at the Odyssey Centre last month.

Zambian hulk and four-time national champion Sylvester Mwila was the guest-poser at the contest.

The Southern Africa Bodybuilding Championships will feature four male categories; the middle weight (70kg- 80kg), light heavy weight (80kg- 90kg), heavy weight (90kg-100kg) and the overall winner which will be the main highlight of the night.

The overall winner is set to pocket a cash prize of $3000. The open category classes will see uniform prizes being awarded with each category winner getting $800 and $400 for the second placed while the second runner up getting $200.

Zimbabwe is set to be represented by reigning Mr Zim, Champion Chienderamwano and Chimuchenga together with 2014 Ironman first runner-up Kandiyero.

The other local bodybuilders making their way to Lusaka are Upenyu Mahlaulo and Simbarashe Fero, who both attained top five finishes at the Gaborone Classics last month.

Chienderamwano expressed confidence that he will lead his team to victory albeit in this individual contest on Saturday.

“I’m ready for the battle,” Chienderamwano told the Daily News from his Botswana base yesterday.

“It’s going to be a tight one but I’m sure as my name sums it all, I will conquer and lift the Zimbabwe flag high.

“I will leave for Zambia tomorrow morning (today) by bus as I won’t be driving because of dieting.”
