The Beast is back

HARARE - Victor “The Beast” Hungwe has cut short his self-imposed exile from local bodybuilding contests in a bid to stop Champion “Mbewe” Chienderamwano dominance in the sport.

The Body Active Gym athlete last competed at the Musclemania Zimbabwe contest last year when he lost his title to Chienderamwano.

Hungwe subsequently pulled out of the 2013 Mr Zimbabwe contest as he opted to take part at the South African National in November.

The Zimbabwean won the tournament and subsequently won a ticket to go to take part at the World Bodybuilding Championships in Naples, Italy.

Hungwe capped off his year by winning the Under 90kg title in Naples.

While Hungwe concentrated on the international scene, his nemesis Chienderamwano maintained his stranglehold on the local bodybuilding scene.

The Botswana-based bodybuilder successfully defended his Musclemania and Mr Zimbabwe titles this year while Hungwe could only watch from a distance.

Agitated by Chienderamwano’s dominance at all local contests, Hungwe said he is now coming back next year to give the former a stiff challenge.

“You know after watching the Mr Zim contest, I think it’s time to unleash the Beast on the Zimbabwe stage next year,” Hungwe told the Daily News.

“Apart from international shows, I wanna (sic) do Mr Zim. I want to humble that boy (Chienderamwano) and put him in his rightful place.”

Hungwe revealed that he was still soothing with anger after Chienderamwano ‘controversially’ won the 2013 Musclemania title.

“After taking a long year break, my coach believes there is not any harm in doing one big local show,” he added.

“Besides, despite my rich closet of accolades, I need to add the Mr Zim title and I also got a score to settle after Champion’s controversial Musclemania win.

“I hardly know him but I respect the guy as a bodybuilder.”
