In brief remarks, CEO of Fitness Express, Jamie McDonald, said that his company is always happy to provide sponsorship and support to the GAPF especially given the stellar performances and results, both locally and internationally of its lifters.

McDonald added that the GAPF and the entire powerlifting fraternity continues to do Guyana proud adding that it was amazing that  they are able to achieve such high levels of success with such modest financial investment relative to the other more prominent sporting initiatives in Guyana.

“We look forward to seeing the performances of the novice

athletes that this year’s competition will produce,” said Mc Donald.
