In the Teen and open class category, 17-year-old Quincy Edwards and Dimitri Williams from the Good Samaritan Gym in Georgetown were adjudged winners.

Williams also copped the overall title for best body.

Show promoter, Allan Hanson said that they are hoping to host more shows to make persons aware of health and wellness.

Hanson also noted that they have formed a team called the “Fitness Warriors” which will be touring the island to promote healthy lifestyles. “We are declaring a war on obesity and diabetes in society, especially our young people,” Hanson said.

Hanson thanked sponsors: Gourment Food, Hutchinson Construction in Bequia, Star Garage, Princess Diamond from Hair Talk Salon, Gregory Boyea, Lisa Walker, Stephen Walker, Randy’s Supermarket and Inspector Jonathon Nicholls.

With the success of the show, Hanson noted that his main goal now is to raise funds for the competitors who took part in the show to travel to Barbados on June 12 to compete in the Natural Universe Body Building championship.
