THE Solomon Islands National Bodybuilding Federation in collaboration with the BM Home Gym Club will host the first ever Mr. Solomon Body Building Competition next month.

The competition will be staged on the 27th and 28th November at the Multipurpose Hall in Honiara.

Ten body building clubs in Honiara will participate in the competition.

The competition will be competed in eight categories and in two rounds.

Registrations are now open and will close on the 27th November next month.

Competition coordinator Redley Ramo in a press conference yesterday said that the SINBBF received the full support from sporting stakeholders such as the National Sports council and the National Olympic Committee Solomon Islands (NOCSI) to facilitate the competition.

He said since this would be the first of its kind in the country, SINBBF believed that the collective efforts from all stakeholders are very much sought in order to make the event a successful one.

He said modern body building is relatively new in the Solomon Islands but since it started in 2007, it has gained a lot of interest especially from young people.

During the last South Pacific Games body building just missed out from collecting a medal coming fourth and on the world stage, Solomon Islands came 15th out of 100 competitors around the world who participated in a world body building competition in Dubai UEA.

Ramo said SINBBF sees these as a great achievement for body building in the country.

The competition is part of the SINBBF development plan and the upcoming event is seen as an ice breaking event which is going to set a benchmark for the growth and development of the sport.

“Since Solomon Islands is slowly recovering from the aftermath of the recent ethnic crises this historical event will present the eventual winner as “Mr.Solomon Ambassador for Peace 2010”, said Ramo.

The aims and objectives of the competition are to expand the domestic players to competitions raising the level of competitiveness in body building, select a training squad for the upcoming competitions especially SPG, to build competence in organizing national competition for more organized competitions in the future, raised funds to assist the federation with its development programs, encourage youths to get them engaged to live healthy, peaceful and productive lifestyle in society and to elevate the winner to become Mr. Solomon 2010 Ambassador for Peace.

Ramo said another major objective is to see body building to graze up citizens who are discipline, healthy, law abiding and productive in the society.

SINBBF is anticipating an expense budget of SBD$250,000 for this upcoming competition.

Meanwhile, the SINBBF appealed to business houses, sympathizers and development partners to assist in one way or the other to support this historical event.
