IBFF president lands today

HARARE - International Bodybuilding Federation and Fitness (IBFF) African president Arnie Williams is expected in the country this morning, 24 hours before the historic IBFF Zimbabwe Classic takes off.

The contest is scheduled for Harare’s Reps Theatre in the evening with registration for the athletes opening its doors this afternoon at Body Active Gym at Borrowdale Race Course.

This is the first time Zimbabwe hosts the IFBB Classic which comes courtesy of Victor Hungwe’s historic triumph at a World meet in Naples, Italy in December 2013.

The “Hulk” as he is known in bodybuilding circles won the World Bodybuilding Championships on a South African ticket after he finished second at the World Physique Federation U90kg in SA.

In April this year, Hungwe, who is Zimbabwe’s IBFF ambassador, turned professional after winning a Pro Card at a South African IBFF contest staged in Midrand, Johannesburg.

“It’s pretty much of a homestretch now having covered almost every part that needed attention and the registration opens today at the Body Active Gym,” Hungwe told the Daily News yesterday.

“The president, Arnie Williams touches down this morning at 8am and should be a big part of everything that will be taking place in the afternoon leading into the main show on Saturday.

“We are also expecting a large chunk of the South African contingent of Zimbabwe bodybuilders led by Dumiso Dhodhlo and of course our guest poser, Vusimuzi Njisane.”

Some of the country’s finest local bodybuilders such as Vincent Kandiero, Isaac Chimuchenga, Irvine Dekeya and ladies Helen Costa, Regina Jonga and Barbara Jambga to name but a few are all expected to take part in the contest tomorrow.
