Clash of titans at Mr Bulawayo

HARARE - At least four local champions are expected to compete at the Mr and Ms Bulawayo bodybuilding contest this Saturday.

Dominican Convent’s St Mary’s Cathedral Hall will host the City of Kings’ premier bodybuilding contest which is scheduled to begin at 1pm.

At least three categories will be on show namely, ladies bodybuilding, juniors (Under-21) and the senior men bodybuilding.

Givemore Marufu, who won this year’s Police Commissioner MR ZRP title, Mr Western (Mbizvo Province) winner John Domingo, Mr Zimbabwe lightweight junior champion Lovemore Munyamanda and Mr Novice 2015 winner Brian Samudombe are all scheduled to compete in the senior men’s category.

Bulawayo Metropolitan Bodybuilding and Fitness organising secretary, Simon Gama said they have covered every ground to host a successful contest.

“We are excited by the turn of events heading into Saturday; athletes have come on board to register and we are pleased that all the three categories will be competed in at the contest,” he told the Daily News yesterday.

“We are expecting at least 12 athletes in the senior men category and four apiece in the juniors and ladies but indications are high that these figures may increase as we draw closer to the day.

“Of particular interest will be the senior men bodybuilding where at least four top bodybuilders and champions in their respective contests will battle it out here.

“On the women front we have Ms Zimbabwe Bikini, Shantel Batch leading the pack, so we are really excited with the quality of contestants that we have.”

The province will be using this contest to select athletes for the Mr and Ms Iron Man set for Kadoma.

“We will have aerobics done by Body Works Gym and karate displays in between the contests just to make sure fans are entertained on Saturday,” Gama said.
