ORGANISERS expect about 25 body builders to participate in the Buksh Classic Bodybuilding Championship in Suva this weekend.

Competition official Patrick Fenn said about 10 body builders from the West had shown interest in participating in the event at the YMCA Gym in Suva.

"Entry is open until the weigh-in, so we won't really find out the exact number until the weigh-in," he said.

"But the interest is there and many builders are looking forward to the competition this season."

This is the first of four competitions this season and Fenn said they would find out who is in form and who is not.

"It is the beginning of the year and as we all know many people head to the gym at the very beginning of the year as part of their resolutions. But here we will find out those who have stuck to their resolutions and those who have given up.

"We will find out those who have been consistent and those now slacking down."

Fenn said defending champion Inoke Ligairi was expected to compete in an attempt to defend the title.

"Like I said, we won't find out until the weigh-in but he is expected to compete and veteran builder and former champion Voniriti Radua is also expected to compete.

"Also we are expecting to see some young builders who just recently took up the sport last year or at the beginning of this year."

Weigh-in will be at 5pm at the YMCA Gym on Friday and pre-judging will begin at 6pm.

The finals will be on Saturday from 2pm.
