Schoolboys and girls to flex their muscles
BOYS AND girls across the island will be flexing their muscles and showing off their physiques at the Mr Schoolboy Bodybuilding and Miss School Body Fitness Championships next week.
And this year’s event will have new winners in the senior categories since last year’s champions Kammeco Byer and Elsie Mofford have now gone on to new heights.
Bodybuilding coach at the National Sports Council Valence Humphrey told NATION SPORT that the majority of competitors from last year will be competing again on November 11 at 4 p.m. at the Lester Vaughan School.
“Again we have Kimani Maynard from Hillaby Turners Hall and her sister Christiana Maynard from the Ellerslie Secondary School, there’s also Kevin Webster from St Giles and Zadana Scantlebury who won last year in the juniors. She’s coming back again this year,” he said.
Humphrey revealed that three workshops have been completed so far and the fourth and final will be conducted on Friday.
The NSC currently has 41 schools registered for the competition but the coach is hoping another nine will come on board.
“It is our 50th Independence. Since the competition has been going we had an average of 35 schools represented each year but this year is a historic show. If you are a part of the show in the 50th year you are a part of history,” said Humphrey.
This year’s guest posers are Central American and Caribbean body figure champion and Darcy Beckles Classic body figure queen Tamesha Lewis and Mr Teenager and CAC Junior Caribbean bodybuilding champion Lamarr Coward. (RG)
