Broomes steals show

THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN, at least for the time being.
Established names Martinus Durrant and Hoskins “Biscuits” Worrell didn’t produce the expected fireworks to light up the national bodybuilding stage, leaving the way for impressive 21-year-old Ramon Broomes to steal the thunder at the most prized muscle contest in the country at the Plantation Garden Theatre on Saturday night.
Broomes shared the spoils at this year’s Nationals with Sophia Forte, who outclassed Julia Davis and police officer Christine Stanford to claim the Miss Barbados title.
On the body fitness stage, queenly Ramona Morgan, with her six-pack abs and sharp legs, brushed aside comeback kid Tamesha Lewis for a commanding triumph.
Former Banks calendar girl, the 26-year-old Saskia Griffith, earned the nod of the crowd and the judges for the top spot in the bikini fitness contest.
It was a night to remember for the Strike Force Gym as the stylish and supremely confident Griffith took the overall crown from shapely teammate Natalie Webb.
Most eyes, though, were on the muscle stage and Broomes delivered.
Even if he still needs to work on his traps and upper chest, it is clear he is one for the future.
