The second staging of Mr. and Miss Flex Night Berbice will be held on Saturday at the Corentyne Comprehensive High School in Ankerville, Port Mourant.
According to a release, the venue will come alive from 19:00hrs when 24 male and female bodybuilders take the stage to vie for the titles of Mr. and Miss Flex Night Berbice 2013.
The bodybuilders in contention are drawn from gyms throughout the length and breadth of Berbice as the Mr. and Miss Flex Night Berbice celebrates what is being seen as a Renaissance of bodybuilding in Regions 5 and 6.
In 2012 the event was held at the Berbice High School and the local planning committee was spearheaded by Winston Clement of Windero Gym, and then Flex Night Berbice Regional Coordinator.
This year, to stress the extent to which bodybuilding has ignited in the Corentyne area, the event is being held in Port Mourant, and planning is being coordinated by Raheem Ali, the new Berbice Coordinator and owner of House of Pain Gym.
The Flex Night and Expo has won the support of Gizmos and Gadgets who will be sponsoring the trophy for the overall winner as well as having a display of their line of bodybuilding supplements and attire.
Pooran’s Pharmacy will be having a similar display. These companies are seizing the opportunity to make the Corentyne bodybuilding and fitness enthusiasts more aware of their product offerings.
The following gyms will be sending athletes to the Flex Night Berbice event:
Fitness Zone, House of Pain Gym, Power House Gym, Power Flex Gym, Skeldon Community Centre Gym and Windero Gym.
So far two ladies – Candacy Lynch and Janica Sandy, both from Windero Gym, will be contesting the Miss Flex Night Berbice. The Mr. Flex Night Berbice will see both veteran and new competitors taking the stage, in what promises to be a night to remember at Port Mourant.
