Legends made at Elite Athlete Extravaganza

The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City Casino was the chosen destination for 161 athletes who flexed for glory at the non-affiliated Elite Athlete Extravaganza in Johannesburg at the weekend.

Legends were made on the stage in the second edition of the show in what was a day-long display of beauty, fitness and of course muscle and aesthetics.

Promoted by Drienkie Visagie and Lisa Carr the show did not disappoint.

This year a disabled athlete section was introduced which belonged to the phenomenal Marius Landman.

Like last year, the Elite Athlete Extravaganza saw the entry of a crop of exceptionally talented athletes like Alexia Veileroglou and Michelle McCall (Beach Bikini category winners), Shepherd Mpakosi (the Men’s Overall winner in Category 1 and winner of the Model “Bad Boy” Plus and Beach Model) and André Pieterse ( Mr. Elite Light heavyweight Bodybuilding and Category 2 Overall winner).

Other competitors who impressed on the day were Nadine Wales-Smith (Fitness Bikini), Nadine Yates (Figure), Ben Sonopo (Middle Class Bodybuilding) and the Heavyweight winner in the Bodybuilding category, Sipho Maphumulo who displayed outstanding proportion and a ton of quality muscle.
