LENAITASI Biliwaqa was crowned as Mr Bodyworks at the Girmit Centre in Lautoka on Saturday evening.

Biliwaqa who holds the Mr Fiji title was taken to the wire by Jekesoni Yanuyanudrua.

The judges faced a difficult time to determine the winner. The two bodybuilders were separated from the rest and had to go through six rounds of posing before the judges handed the title to Biliwaqa who is a policeman.

Event organiser Albert Veeran who is the publisher of the Bodyworks magazine said there were 23 participants.

Veeran said special guest poser from New Zealand, Sanjeev Narayan was impressed with the talents.

"It was really a close call for the main title," he said.

"The crowd was really buzzing. We also held a fitness expo during the day which attracted big interest. Calls have been made to host it in other districts."

The fitness expo included a walk for fitness, meditation and zumba classes.

Weight category winners: U65 Inoke Verebasaqa, U75 Isimeli Waqabaca;

U80: Lenaitasi Biliwaqa, U85 Jekesoni Yanuyanudrua, U90 Meli Rasileka;

Over-90: William Robert, men's masters over-50 Jale Colata.
