Bodybuilding of Wednesday, 20 August 2014


National body-builders championship Sept 6

Dozens of the country's finest body-builders are poised to dethrone the defending champion, Yaw Azuri, in the national body builders championship scheduled for September 6 at the Hathiramani Hall of the Accra Sports Stadium.

Azuri, winner of the last edition held two years ago, is still determined to hang onto the title.

But he faces a stiff challenge from Eric Abew, who is determined to snatch the sole slot to compete at the Amateur Olympia scheduled for South Africa.

Samuel Adjei, national organiser of the Ghana Bodybuilders and Fitness Association (GBFA), told the Graphic Sports GH¢8000 worth of prize and cash would go to the winner.

He appealed to corporate bodies and spirited individuals to come and support the competition as the association had to dig deep into individual pockets to finance the competition.

Ahead of the competition, the GBFA in partnership with Zenith Bank will organise a health walk in the morning before the competition commences at 7:30 pm.
