MAURICE ARTHUR became the first man to capture a pro event for Barbados in the International Federation of Bodybuilders (IFBB) ranks with a memorable victory in the Toronto Pro men’s physique competition, over the weekend.

Arthur, reportedly in the best shape of his life, with six-pack razor-sharp abs and a rock hard back, qualified for the 2015 men’s physique Olympia in September, by beating a world-class field of 17 in Canada, on Saturday night.

This performance was made all the more astounding as this was only the fourth time he has stepped on the competitive stage, having made his debut only two seasons ago at the 2013 National Championships. The 26-year-old from Bagatelle Terrace, has won three of those four contests having captured his only two amateur contests, the 2013 national and Central American and Caribbean Championships.
