Tomu claims Novice double

LYNNETTE Tomu’s star continues to rise after she claimed a double during last weekend’s 2019 Iron Lion Nutrition and Supplements Novice Zimbabwe Bodybuilding Championships.

The long distance runner, doing well in her newly-found calling, won both the women’s fitness model and the women’s fitness development.

Tomu beat into second place Leshaye Muller on both occasions to add to the GS Fitness Expo Ms Bikini title she won in February.
“Everything continues to fall in the right place and the right time for me. It was a good contest; I invested a lot on getting my body in shape; dieting and observing a strict diet,” Tomu told the Daily News.

National Federation of Zimbabwe Bodybuilding and Fitness secretary-general Quiet Shangai said the event went according to plan.

“We look at Novice as an event, as a programme and as a project. As an event, it went on very well. We had no logistical challenges at all. Our sponsors did their part so did the media and other stakeholders,” Shangai said.

“As a project, we will obviously see the results in the next 24  to 36 months. As a federation, we were also encouraged with geographical footprints with regards to athletes. Nine provinces participated and that is very health.”

Apart from title sponsors, a number of partners also jostled to be associated with the event for beginners. These include Gidza Loans, Cards Unlimited, Karg Media, Musclerage, Supplement Factory, Generations Shop Fitters, Crime Stoppers and Kingsport Investment.

Coming on board for the first time, Gidza Loans director Gilbert Gwaze said they share the same value with the bodybuilding federation.

“Being a young energetic brand, vibrant and hungry for results which also describe the sport of bodybuilding, we saw it as a perfect partnership as we are both driven by the same values,” Gwaze said.
