Cut Like a Diamond – Lusindiso Danster

By Andrew Carruthers, Editor-In-Chief.

At 26 years old, Lusindiso aka The Diamond as he is known across SA has already proven his incredible potential across South Africa and Internationally. Now pursuing a Pro card with the NPC/IFBB Pro League, he could very well just hit that mark if he keeps growing at the rate he currently is. He is perfectly proportioned and has incredible genetics for bodybuilding. It’s very clear that Lusindiso has a potentially crazy sporting career ahead of him and we can’t wait to see how he chops down the competition on his way to the top.

The Diamond takes top left position on Issue 88 of the March/April 2018 edition of Muscle Evolution.
