INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION of Bodybuilding (IFBB) pros Maurice Arthur and Antoinette Downie did Barbados and the Caribbean proud by cracking the top six in their respective divisions at the Toronto SuperShow in Canada last Sunday.
Arthur, the defending men’s physique champion, captured fifth place in a tough international field of 24 competitors, while Downie was sixth in the women’s physique competition which attracted 19 entrants.
“I was good enough to be placed higher, so I am disappointed that I wasn’t, but I am pleased with my performances over the past few weeks.
“I am happy that God gave me the strength to complete three back-to-back shows. It was hard being out here on my own, but I did it,” said Downie, who returned home late Monday night. (MK)
