Body­works venue changed to Gif­ford High

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

host­ing a cricket match on the same day.

The grounds at Gif­ford will be utilised for the out­door events like the strong­men com­pe­ti­tion where mus­cu­lar men get to show their strength by pulling cars for 30 me­tres and run with 100 kilo­grammes of weights over the same dis­tance, which is called the farm­ers’ walk.

Those in­ter­ested can at­tend both the out­door and in­door events for a com­bined fee of $3.

Body­builders will com­pete in the se­nior men open, men’s Un­der-23, men’s fit­ness and women’s fit­ness bikini at the in­door event at Elite 400. “There is cricket on that day at BAC, so we have paid for Gif­ford and Elite 400. We needed a ground to do strong­man hence the two venues, but it’s all the same ad­mis­sion fee for both venues,” said Green­land.

Held a week af­ter the Mr and Ms Zim­babwe that took place at the Harare In­ter­na­tional School in the cap­i­tal city on Satur­day, the Body­works Clas­sics is cer­tain to at­tract the best body­builders from around Zim­babwe and some based out­side the coun­try.

Regis­tra­tion is pegged at $5 and has al­ready started, but event co­or­di­na­tor Si­mon Gama in­di­cated that the ten­dency of body­builders is to sign up for par­tic­i­pa­tion on the day of the event.

This al­lows con­tes­tants to regis­ter a few hours be­fore it takes off.

Green­land told our sis­ter pub­li­ca­tion The Sun­day News ear­lier this month that he de­cided to bankroll the Body­works Clas­sics as his way of mo­ti­vat­ing body­builders that put in a lot of work in the gym.

He said prizes will be up for grabs for those that fin­ish in the top five of each cat­e­gory, with the prizes be­ing kept as a sur­prise and are to be un­veiled to win­ners on the day.

There will also be an aer­o­bics and taek­wondo dis­play to com­ple­ment the body­build­ing event — @ Mdaw­ini_29
