Event organiser and pro card holder Simba “GS” Mhaka yesterday declared that they were ready to roll adding that the event will be spiced up by aerobics and Zumba classes.
“I am excited, everything is coming together pretty well,” he said.
“This has always been my dream, hosting a bodybuilding competition that gives even the athletes from the high density areas a chance to prove their worth in front of the country’s leading judges.
“Everything is pointing to a highly subscribed event and I would like to thank all my sponsors for partnering me in this endeavor.
“Without their support this would have remained just a dream.”
Iron Lion and Nutrition and Supplements boss Cornelius Joshua Rudziva said his organisation intends to strengthen their partnership with GS while also looking at partnering athletes involved in other sporting codes.
Rudziva has so far roped rugby player Shingi Katswere and the bodybuilding brigade of Mhaka, Mr Zimbabwe junior Tatenda Chikuhwa and Regina Jonga into his stable.
“As an organisation we believe in giving our supporting at the grass root level unlike some guys who always want to be associated with the top events. We want to grow this thing in partnership with GS and can safely say that we will do it again next year.
“Sports performance, weight control and muscle building supplementation have been our cornerstones of Iron Lion’s premium product offerings and we will be showing off what we are also made of at the expo,” he said.
Rudziva, a former professional rugby player who has successful stints in Europe, noted that local sportspeople sometimes fail perform at optimum level because of their lack of nutritional understanding.
“Sadly we are still lagging behind in this aspect but it’s not a train smash, out athletes need the right information and as Iron Lion Supplements and Nutrition we are ready to play our part in the further development of Zimbabwean sport,” said Rudziva.
