New bodybuilding season is in full swing

Athletes showed their dedication, hunger and passion for success at two bodybuilding season openers hosted by the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (IFBB) on Saturday, 24 March 2018 in Durban and Potchefstroom.

The best up-and-coming bodybuilders and fitness athletes flexed their way to a gold medal at the IFBB KwaZulu-Natal Ironman Novice show held at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Westville. Competitors were judged on criteria such as muscle symmetry, definition and body shape.

Athletes also showed their mettle in the bodybuilding arena at the IFBB’s Champions Arise in Potchefstroom in the North West where an extra gram of flab made the difference between a winner’s trophy and leaving the stage empty-handed.

Congratulations to the divisional winners and all who competed.
