Mhaka off to IFBB Diamond Cup

HARARE - High-flying current Mr Zimbabwe and two-time Mr Ironman physique champion Simbarashe Mhaka is set to compete at the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (IFBB) Diamond Cup in the United Kingdom in October.

The aesthetically gifted athlete is looking forward to establish himself as one of the finest men’s physique athletes in the world.

“My aim is to turn pro one day. I have the drive and only I can limit my person’s abilities,” Mhaka said.

Mhaka won the IFBB Boksburg Classic men’s physique overall title in South Africa on August 6 this year to establish himself as arguably one of the finest physique athletes in southern Africa.

Recently, Mhaka retained his Mr Ironman physique title at a contest held at Long Chen Plaza’s 1+1 Happy.

Blessed with a V taper, broad and flat chest, diamond calves, narrow midsection, muscle contours and erect delts, the local athlete has what it takes to do damage at a men’s physique contest.

“I have observed that in the sports industry one has to work very hard. I was a track and field athlete before and I learnt a lot of lessons. Hard work pays,” he added.

“I would like to thank the federation for its efforts to bring more genres in the physique industry because it is allowing people with different genetic make-ups to find career paths.”

If Mhaka wins his division; up to and including 182cm he will earn an IFBB elite card which will allow him to participate at the IFBB Elite World Cup and enhancing chances of earning a pro card should he win the overalls.

Meanwhile, the National Federation of Zimbabwe Bodybuilding and Fitness (NFZBBF) has already sent the entry form to IFBB head office and the application has been processed.

“NFZBBF is appealing to well-wishers who can assist one of the finest physique athletes ever to emerge from Zimbabwe,” Quiet Shangai NFZBBF spokesperson said.
