In rather controversial decisions, Campbell (short class) and Cipriani (tall class) placed second behind hometown athletes, Hadley Hoyte and Alex Ifill.

Despite falling short of the top podium spot, the two athletes were favored by the crowd that occupied the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre in St. Michael.

Also representing Guyana were bodybuilders, Eybo Orford, Chaitram Nagessar, Tremel King, Alisha Fortune (Body Fitness) and Yannick Grimes (Men’s Physique).

Grimes who won the national physique title just three months ago, could not replicate a winning performance and could only muster a fifth place finish on the score make the first call out.

The 10th annual event was graced with the presence of seven-time Mr. Olympia, Phil ‘The Gift’ Heath. Heath guest posed and gave an inspirational speech just before the end of the night’s programme.
