LOVE­MORE Mun­ya­mana bagged his fifth con­sec­u­tive Mr Bu­l­awayo body­build­ing ti­tle at Elite 400 on Satur­day night.

Mun­ya­mana , who trains at Body­works Gym, beat four other cont e s t ant s to re­tain the ti­tle he has per­son­alised since 2012. The 33-yearold Mun­ya­mana con­ceded that the event was tough de­spite the unan­i­mous de­ci­sion by all five judges scor­ing him the win­ner.

He be­lieves his sym­met­ri­cal body en­abled him to win.

“I’m very happy although the com­pe­ti­tion was tight be­cause we were few. As the cham­pion, ev­ery­one had been train­ing hard to up­stage me but I won be­cause of my cut. I am cut to the bone, plus my body is more bal­anced than the oth­ers,’’ said Mun­ya­mana.

For be­ing the cham­pion, Mun­ya­mana took home a brand new Sam­sung Tab 3 and a $150 cash. Thomp­son Mpala, a city busi­ness­man, who is also a body­builder and Mr Bu­l­awayo 1995, pro­vided the tablet and cash spon­sor­ship. John Lunga was the first run­ner up, while Delvin Page fin­ished third. Shantel Green­land of Body­works Gym also re­tained her Ms Bu­l­awayo crown ahead of Selina Manuel from the same gym, while Thandi Khu­malo of Nketa was third. Only three women en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion. The first prize in the male fit­ness cat­e­gory went to Brian Saun­dombe. Chukwu Emeka, an 18-year-old Pe­tra High school­boy, won the male ju­nior sec­tion ahead of Dean Grant and Zibu­siso Khu­malo. Each of them walked away with cer­tifi­cates, tro­phies and buck­ets of sup­ple­ments. Clar­ion In­surance, Zim­pa­pers through Sports Zone and Body­works Gym also pro­vided fi­nan­cial back­ing for the event. — @Mdaw­ini_29
