New Mr Suva champion

A NEW champion will be crowned at the Mr Suva Classic Bodybuilding Championship today.

This is because defending champion Inoke Ligairi would not be able to compete on medical grounds.

Competition official Tumeli Navutovuto said Ligairi underwent surgery earlier this week and would not be able to compete.

"He had a lump removed from his hand just this week and so we won't be able to defend his title," he said.

"Also Mr Fiji Lenitasi Biliwaqa would not be able to compete as well because he has work commitments with the Fiji Police Force.

"Some builders who are now the title contenders are Jekesoni Yanuyanudua, Sefanaia Cakautini and former national champion Voniriti Radua."

Navutovuto said about 30 builders were expected to compete today and only a handful of competitors from the west.

"This is because when we had the Mr West, only two builders competed and we cannot even call that a competition with only two people.

"There is very little interest from the west so we expect very little competitors to come from the west."

Meanwhile, former champion Onisivoro Koroi would also not compete because he was still banned from the competition.

It is not known if or when the ban would be lifted.

The event will be held at the YMCA Gym in Suva where the weigh-in would be from 10am to 12noon and the competition would start at 3pm.
