Beauties illuminate Mr Zim

HARARE - A bevy of beauties left male spectators eating from their palm after illuminating the Mr Zimbabwe bodybuilding contest held at the Harare International School on Saturday night.

One spectator Richard Samos described the show as “massive” whilst Hellen Made said the spectacle has motivated her to take to the gym.

Walking, turning and posing in a sexual manner, the 10 contestants won the admiration of drooling men and equally left women spectators deep in introspection.

IMPRESSIVE: Contestants in the Ms Fitness Bikini category during the Mr Zimbabwe bodybuilding contest had the crowd in frenzy on Saturday night at Harare International School.

The judges were on the lookout for body shape, tone, symmetry, and poise presentation.

And they got more than they bargained for with all contestants bringing their A-game for the beauty contest.

In the end Borrowdale Brooke gym’s Carla King emerged as the Ms Fitness Bikini champion outwitting Nicole Beahan of Shape Your Shassy gym and Sally Lapage of Country club gym.

National Federation of Zimbabwe bodybuilding and Fitness spokesman Quite Shangai was excited at the response.

“As you saw it was the most subscribed category of the night,” Shangai said.

“It has become very popular with both women and men. I think it’s going to be one of the categories that will be oversubscribed in future.

“The category was introduced 2011 at Mr Pro Fitness Open. We have now made it mandatory for all events sanctioned by the national association to have the Ms Fitness section.”

Shangai was however concerned women still shied away from the competitive categories of Body building.

“It’s a progression and we will get there,” he said.

Meanwhile, Wendy Hanssen bagged the Ms Zimbabwe award unopposed.

Despite going it out alone, Hanssen who trains at Triton Gym in Harare turned up with great figure and gave spectators some moments to savour with an impressive physique.

Hellen Costa who defended her ladies fitness figure title, shrugging off six other competitors in the process could simply say “am honoured truly.”

Costa acknowledged the stiff competition saying that will push her “to work extremely hard to improve on my frame.”
