A NEW champion will be crowned at the Mr Suva Classic Bodybuilding Championship tomorrow.
This was after defending champion Onisivoro Koroi was not allowed to participate in the competition.
Bodybuilding Fiji vice president Patrick Fenn said Koroi was not willing to return the trophy he won at last year's event.
"He has been disciplined for that and for other charges made against him by the Charmans All Races Club," he said.
"The board is yet to meet and discuss the full extent of his penalty but it's possible that there may be further action that could be taken against him."
Fenn said many new bodybuilders have shown interest in participating at the event.
"This is a good thing for the sport because we are looking at providing as much competition as possible to prepare them for the 2015 Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea.
"But it will all depend on their performance on Saturday."
He said selectors would pick a group of bodybuilders to participate at the South Pacific Bodybuilding Championships in Tonga next month.
"On Saturday we will see if the selectors will have a hard task or easy task.
"A lot of young promising bodybuilders have shown interest and then there is reigning Mr Fiji Voniriti Radua.
"He has been training and the veteran could claim another title."
The event will be held at the Fiji Arts Club in Suva where the weigh-in would be at 12noon and competition will begin at 2pm.
