ABOUT 30 bodybuilders are expected to compete at the Mr West championship on Saturday.

Bodybuilding Fiji official Patrick Fenn said while majority of tcompetitors would be from Suva, those from the west should not be counted out.

"Hamend Anand of Nadi is the reigning champion and he would be aiming to keep the title for another year," he said.

"Those who would provide stiff challenges to him are Voniriti Radua, Lenitasi Biliwaqa and Jekesoni Yanuyanudua.

"There are a lot of young builders that would compete and it's good because the more they compete in front of different crowds, the better their confidence becomes."

Fenn said the competition was also the beginning of selection for the 2015 Pacific Games that would in Papua New Guinea.

"It's the first selection ground but we won't name the final squad after it.

"We would identify talent at the Mr West and inform those builders to begin hard core preparation now so that they could be in the final squad for next year's Pacific Games."
