Musclemania postponed again

HARARE - Musclemania Zimbabwe organisers have decided to postpone the contest for the second time in as many months.

The contest was initially supposed to have been held on August 9 but the organisers decided to move the date.

They had proposed for the show to be held today but that is no longer feasible and they have decided to move it to next weekend.

Musclemania Zimbabwe will now take place just a week before the country premier bodybuilding contest, the Mr Zimbabwe show pencilled in for October 18.

Tofara Moyo the contest’s coordinator said: “Everything else is ready. We had some of our bodybuilders come from as far as Botswana and we must apologise for moving the show within a short notice but come October 11 they will all be smiling because we have put everything on the ground to make this a bigger and better show than the previous years.”

Meanwhile, Mr Zimbabwe promises to be a bigger event with the light weight category tipped to be the main attraction.

The probable line-up will see reigning Ironman, Isaac Chimuchenga sweating it out with Eliah Samaringa, George Munyoro, Isaac Dhliwayo, Eddie Marondere, Arthur Kasengezi and Lovemore Manyamana.

Promising Marondera bodybuilder and current Novice champion, Blessing Nyapimbi will also compete in the lightweight category together with Garikai Mujuru, John Mazikana and Donald Maphosa.

National Federation of Zimbabwe Bodybuilding and Fitness (ZNBBF) spokesperson Quiet Shangai said a battle of muscles lies ahead.

“Unless Isaac, Eddie and Arthur decide to compete in the middle weight which is very possible though, this will be the second most competitive division after figure fitness,” said Shangai.

National Foods have been lined up as the main sponsors for the fitness figures category while Tumbuka Dance Group has been billed to perform at the competition.
