KUCHING: Fresh-faced Ahmad Faizal Abd Rahman emerged the champion in the inaugural Mr Senso Perfect Fit Body Physique Championship 2014 here recently, beating 13 other fitness enthusiasts from around the city.
The maiden outing was organised by Mr Muscle Fitness Gym and Senso Bar & Lounge of Kuching Hilton Hotel, with support from Sarawak Body Building Association (SBBA) and main sponsorship from Kuching Supplements.
At second place was Mohd Affizan Abdullah, followed by Muliadi Panot, Jury Amrullah Ibrahim and Almirul Jemali who finished third, fourth and fifth respectively.
Each took home prizes sponsored by Kuching Supplements, as well as other sponsors such as CS Mini
Market and Guinness Anchor Bhd.
On hand to present the prizes were Kuching City North Commission Datuk Bandar Datuk Abang Abdul Wahap Abang Abang Julai, SBBA president Datuk Wee Hong Seng and Kuching Supplements founder and director Mohd Ghaddafie Zamani.
Ghaddafie noted that with the booming of the fitness and bodybuilding industry in the state, many young talents had begun to show interest in this healthy lifestyle and dare themselves to take part in competitions.
“This is a very positive development which shows that Sarawak is not lacking when it comes to having potential bodybuilding champions.
“Any physique competition such as Mr Senso Perfect Fit would serve as a viable platform not only for those wanting to embark into professional bodybuilding, but also for the state to seek new talents who could one day become the pride of the state in the sport,” he said in a press statement yesterday.
As a food and health supplement company, Ghaddafie said Kuching Supplements had always supported state sports by way of sponsoring a number of athletes to local and national events.
“This time, we have decided to go a bit further by sponsoring the Sarawak team to the Mr Borneo Bodybuilding Championships 2014, which will take place in Kota Belud, Sabah this Dec 20.
“While we seem to be endorsing bodybuilding, we also strive to support other sports such as muaythai, mixed martial arts and cycling. This is our way of giving back in helping sports development in Sarawak,” he said.
