Local bodybuilding will make a grand return with the hosting of the Barbados Amateur Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation’s (BABBFF) Independence Classic on Saturday evening at the Derrick Smith School & Vocational Centre.

The event will be streamed live on social media as only competitors, judges and a small number of officials will be present at the venue in adherence to COVID-19 protocols.

President of the BABBFF Dr Alfred Sparman noted his excitement ahead of the federation’s first competition since the onset of the pandemic last year.

“We are really excited because with the possibility that we can have over 1  000 viewers of the show and it can really motivate the sport for next year. Next September we will host the Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Championships along with the Diamond Cup, so hosting this event successfully this weekend is a good platform for big things to come in the future,” Sparman told MIDWEEK SPORT.
