Tri-nation musclemen, women set for epic showdown

Two armies of bodybuilders from Suriname and Brazil will invade the National Cultural Centre tonight to do battle with the crème de le crème of Guyana’s musclemen and women when Flex Night International stages its inaugural tri-nation event.

An array of chiseled physiques made up of rippling abdominals, well- defined quadriceps and sculpted arms and legs will be on display as the competitors will try to out-pose and out-flex each other in the various categories.

The event which is dubbed ‘Raising the Bar’ will see the competitors vying for supremacy in the Mr. Flex Night, Miss Flex Night, Miss Bikini and Miss Best Legs categories.
