In excess of $900,000 will be up for grabs when the Guyana Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation Inc (GBBFFI) stages its National Seniors Championship on August 6 at the Marriott Hotel.
According to president of the federation, Coel Marks, “we are happy to be awarding cash and prizes to our athletes. Mr. Guyana this year is walking away with six figures”.
Marks stopped short for making the official figures known since he stated that “sponsors are still coming in slow but sure.”
The bodybuilding head added yesterday “Our goal is to make sure our athletes feel incentivized as much as possible because without them we have no show.”
The flagship event of the GBBFFI, will see the top musclemen and women in the 592 gracing the stage.
Said Marks “We have some great athletes lined up despite the reigning Champ, Kerwin Clarke still tentative. All the competitors are very anxious to grace the stage at one of the largest venues a bodybuilding show has been hosted in recent years. A venue that’s sure to draw a very diverse audience.”
Marks concluded by stating “The night is slated to have other entertainment pieces to keep patrons engaged. A surprised artiste also will be showcased. It’s should be a fun filled show displaying Guyana’s best.”
Admission is set at $2500.
