Body­build­ing cal­en­dar out

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

“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.”
