Johnny dominates PCA’s Rise of the Phoenix

Johnny Moutzouris is the talk of the town after winning the Masters, Senior Men under 85kg as well as the Overall title at the fourth edition of the popular Rise of the Phoenix competition hosted by the Physical Culture Association (PCA) in East London at the weekend.

Moutzouris faced some stiff competition from veteran Shane Kreusch in the Masters division with Chris Oelofse also giving him a serious run for his money in the comparisons during their battle for the Overall title. In the end it was Moutzouris who outclassed his bodybuilding rivals on the night. This may have been his best combination of size and conditioning yet.

Other athletes who set the bar high with incredible conditioning were Sheri Muller (Toned Bikini), Brad Swart (Classic Bodybuilding), Stephan Strydom (Muscle Model) and Jaime Griffiths (Toned Figure).

Congratulations to all the competitors who worked so hard to put on a phenomenal show for bodybuilding fans!
