Durrant back for Nationals

Social Share

VOWING that he is ripped and ready, two-time Mr Barbados Martinus Durrant returns to the stage for the first time in three years at tomorrow’s National Bodybuilding Championships at The Plantation Theatre.
There is likely to be a standing room only audience for the return of Durrant, who will flex muscle for the first time since serving a two-year ban after a positive drug test at the 2009 Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Championships in Grenada where he lifted the light heavyweight title and overall crown.
The Vincentian-born Durrant was stripped of the title that would have qualified him for the pro ranks.
He told WEEKENDSPORT that the drug suspension was now “water under the bridge” and he was ready to revive his career.
“It was a setback, but it is water under the bridge and I am ready to move on. It feels good to be back and I am looking forward to this weekend’s Nationals,” said the 40-year-old.
“I didn’t waste the time I served under suspension. I put it to good use. I have made significant improvements. My symmetry is more proportionate and there is added sweep to my thighs.”
