MR Fiji Lenatasi Biliwaqa was crowned the new champion in the Buksh Classic Bodybuilding Championships in Suva yesterday.

The policeman won the under-80KG category and also took out the overall title held by Mr Suva Inoke Ligairi.

Sefanaia Cakautini was second overall while veteran bodybuilder and former national champion Voniriti Radua was third.

More than 20 builders gathered at the YMCA Gym in Suva for the first competition of the year and Bodybuilding Fiji president John Lee said they were impressed by what they saw.

"We saw a lot of new faces competing and this is a good sign for the future of the sport," he said.

"Judging by what the new ones showed us, they gained a lot of experience and confidence from this competition.

"They said they would improve by the next competition and we judges will get to see something different from the newcomers at the next competition."

He said the standard of competition had also been raised because of the increase in competitors.

"We saw very tight competition between the experienced competitors.

"The reigning champions will find it very hard to defend their titles this season."

Under 75KG: 1st-Julius Small, 2nd-Inoke Verebasaga, 3rd-Manueli Sucuvou

Under 80KG: 1st-Lenatasi Biliwaqa, 2nd-Jekesoni Yanuyanudua, 3rd-Voate Pepe
