Shows to look out for in 2018
The stage is the rocket ship to the stars for bodybuilders. And there’s never been a better time to shine than at this very moment as show promoters and federations are falling over each other to build the sport’s capacity and presence across the country in their ongoing search for fresh talent.
We need each other
A well-known gym adage says: Know your worth, then rise on your own. This is not entirely true. While bodybuilding is an all-consuming sport, no one arrives at a show on their own. Friends pat down your tan in the back stage area, coaches bark out instructions, and family and fans yell out praise when you step on stage to hit your poses. We all need each other to grow the sport we love. There are the risk takers, the supporters, and the ones bold enough to go all out and put it all on the line in pursuit of a dream. Life is not about playing it safe and when you prep for a show, there is no return flight on the trip. Athletes need the fans, the organisers, sponsors, judges and officials to make it work.
