Recently, the show’s organizer, Videsh Sookram was fortunate to reach sponsorship agreements with the two sponsors for the November 3 event billed for the Theatre Guild.

According to Sookram, the show which is in its third year, attracts international competitors 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.

The organizer also made an appeal for other corporate entities for support.

“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.
