KUCHING: Young muscleman Eric Douglas Guyut finally clinched the Mr KIBW title at CityONE Megamall here on Sunday on his third attempt in competition since he started last year.

The 20-year-old walked away with RM600 along with other prizes after beating 12 other contenders in the Under-167cm category.

Completing the next four positions were Muhammad Firdaus Zamri, Azree Karim, Mohd Nasriq and Hamizul Jahwi.

“This is my first win after having competed in Mr Simunjan 2017 last week and Mr Boulevard 2017 in August. It feels great – a boost for me to continue competing going forward.

“I hope to gain more experience as much as I can to prepare for major competitions next year like Mr Kuching,” said Eric, who hails from Kampung Sikog at Jalan Penrissen near here.

Meanwhile, Mohd Fadzil Che Omar topped the Above-167cm contest which gathered eight contestants.

Nicholas Nohek, Faiz Safiuddin, Faizul Chula and Wilson Ho finished runner-up to fifth.

The bodybuilding competition, organised by Iron Tiger Bikers Club, was among the activities held during last weekend’s Kuching International Bike Week (KIBW) 2017.

Partners for the event were TRUEvents, TRUMoto, Uber, EventFeet and Kuching Supplements.
