Bodybuilding calendar out
“There are many competitions lined-up for this coming year, including the GS Fitness and Gold Classic, the Ironman scheduled for June 1, the Marume Classic in October and the Mr Zimbabwe in September.
“There are going to be many contenders and we expect the Mr Novice to bring on board new competitors who will go all the way to take part in the Innocent Choga Classic, which is going to be last competition of the year. We are looking forward to have many contests from provincial shows which should be held before August 31,” said Shangai.
Next season is also going to see the return of Isaac “Sugar” Chimuchenga who has not participated in any competition this year.
The Gweru-based hulk had taken a oneyear sabbatical but has promised to come back stronger next year.
Meanwhile, veteran bodybuilder and Life Fitness owner, Philip Gorogodo, has died.
Gorogodo’s death shocked the entire body fitness industry and saw several messages of condolences with many saying it left a big gap which will be very difficult to fill.
“My sincere condolences”, Kenneth Murugweni, the NFZBBF president said.
Shangai added: “Gorogodo was a passionate bodybuilder. He introduced Mr Lifefitness, a competition which gave opportunities to many talented athletes for example Stanboy. I can’t believe that he is gone. May His Soul Rest in Eternal Peace.”
