After witnessing the National Senior Bodybuilding and Fitness Championships last Sunday, promoter, Videsh Sookram circled the date November 3 on his calendar.
November 3 was selected by Sookram as the date he will host the third edition of ‘Stage of Champions’ billed for the Theatre Guild.
According to Sookram, the show which attracts international competitor because of the lucrative cash prizes on offer, is set to be of a higher calibre than the years prior.
He stated that along with foreign athletes, he is optimistic that recently crowned bodybuilding, men’s physique and bikini champions, Kerwin Clarke, Emmerson Campbell and Chandini Khan will compete on stage.
If the trio competes, Khan and Clarke, a five-time national champion will be making their debuts. Campbell won the physique segment in 2016 and 2017 and would be gunning for a three-peat.
The promoter added that so far he has reached agreements with sponsors, Fitness Express, Sabina Global Communities, KFC and Farfan and Mendes.
“We are still looking for sponsors so we can give some more incentives to the athletes but I am sure the corporate community will support once we start getting the word out there” said Sookram.
Last year, the bodybuilding, physique and bikini champions took home $250,000, $100,000 and $100,000 respectively.
The second and third place finishers in bodybuilding secured $130,000 and $100,000 while the first and second runners up in physique and bikini pocketed $50,000 and $25,000 in that order.
