Mr Zim: It's a family show

HARARE - The National Federation of Zimbabwe Bodybuilding and Fitness (NFZBBF) is making today’s Mr and Ms Zimbabwe contest a family show by including a children’s category at the event.

The contest is scheduled for this evening at the Harare International School in Mt Pleasant with as many categories never experienced before in local bodybuilding competitions. Chief among them is the children’s categories for both girls and boys up to 19 years of age.

NFZBBF organising committee member Keith Chirimanzi said this year’s show promises to be bigger and better.

“This is going to be one of the biggest events in recent years . . . we are having the show at this venue because we are expecting a full house and parents bringing on their kids,” Chirimanzi told the Daily News.

“We want it to be a family event; in fact, we have introduced categories like the children’s fitness up to 19 years for both girls and boys.”

This year’s edition has attracted a lot of seasoned campaigners some of whom had long called it quits and thus Chirimanzi envisages a show to remember.

“We have athletes coming from Botswana, South Africa and others like Munashe Mutandirotya who had retired,” he said.

“Most importantly, we host this event on the backdrop of our athlete Helen Costa being the reigning Sports Woman of the Year which is very important to us as NFZBBF.”

The contest will be held in conjunction with Texas Meats and starts with the prejudging event at 9.30am.

Those athletes who will be deemed fit to enter the competition will line up for the main show which starts at 6pm.
