Strong judges panel for Mr Ironman

HARARE - The National Federation of Zimbabwe Bodybuilding and Fitness (NFZBBF) is set to unveil a strong judges bench for today’s Mr and Ms Ironman scheduled for Longchen Plaza in Harare.

Six-time Mr Zimbabwe winner Innocent Choga highlights the illustrious list of judges tasked to preside over the event today.

Tubbs Madzime, who won the Mr Zimbabwe title in 1999, Thompson Mpala, Last Sthole and yesteryear bodybuilder John Mhangwa will also be among the judges.

Former world champion and reigning Zimbabwe Sportsperson of the Year Helen Costa, veteran fitness trainer Sibangani Guzha and NFZBBF Judges Commission Head Colin Mushunje will also be part of the adjudicators.

“It’s a qualifier for the Arnolds Classic and we felt we should give a go to some of our best judges in the country who will be using the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness standards” NFZBBF secretary-general Quiet Shangai told the Daily News.

“We have had confirmations from seasoned campaigners such as Isaac Chimuchenga, Simba Mhaka, Fern Roses and Bruce Kakono to name but a few while on a sad note Blessing Nyapimbi was ruled out owing to a family bereavement — he lost his wife while Lovemore Munyamana is not feeling well.

Reigning Mr Ironman, Champion Chimuchenga called time on his bodybuilding career to concentrate on promoting the sport hence will not be available to defend his crown.
