Athletes show ‘X-factor’ at WFF Pretoria Classic Pro-Am

Athletes set the bar high with incredible condition in the World Fitness Federation’s Pretoria Classic Pro-Am hosted at Unisa in Pretoria at the weekend.

Promoters Alet Lemmer (WFF) and Bev Scott (NABBA) pulled out all the stops to make the show as rewarding and as smoothly run for the athletes as possible.

Competitors trained and dieted for weeks leading up to the event. However, to stand out the “X-factor” was needed.

Everyone was in fantastic condition which was ideal for a show of this caliber. The standard of the competitors in each class has clearly grown in leaps and bounds, making the eventual placers’ accomplishments that much more significant.

A total of 178 athletes participated in the show, with 21 qualifying for their WFF Pro Card. A team comprising of the best of the best was also selected to lock horns with their international counterparts in the upcoming WFF Universe competition in Singapore in July.

Among the standout athletes were Gontse Sechele (Men’s Superbody), Anri de Jongh (Bikini Model), Olivier Attias (Men’s Extreme), Eudoddia Calitz (Ladies Extreme) and Ben Sonopo (Men’s Athletic Body).
