THE inaugural Bodybuilding and Fitness Expo received a timely boost from Sports World and Courts Fiji Limited yesterday.

The companies presented $1500 worth of sponsorship in cash and kind to host the event which will be held on June 7 at Girmit Centre in Lautoka.

The day-long expo organised by the Bodyworks Publishing will showcase professionals giving health and bodybuilding tips free.

The expo will culminate with the bodybuilding contest starting at 6pm.

Event organising committee member Simon Shankaran thanked the sponsors for their support.

He requested people to turn out in numbers and enjoy the variety of items on display at the expo.

"It is a way to join the fight against the NCDs and also help revive bodybuilding in Fiji," Shankaran said.

"We will have activities like zumba, yoga and meditation at the expo which the people can try free."

Sports World general manager Vinod Kumar said their sponsorship was part of the corporate social responsibility to develop sports.

"In the past we have been supporting rugby, soccer and athletics and we want to support other sports as well and that's why we have partnered with the organisers of the expo," Kumar said.

"We hope to assist the revival of bodybuilding through the support."

Ticket price for the bodybuilding event is $5 and are available at Patel's Video, Mega Pharmacy and Silver Age in Lautoka.
