CHRISTOPHER ADDO and Seidu Omar were crowned winners in the men’s physique and bodybuilding contest of the World Amateur Bodybuilding Association (WABBA) Ghana Greater Accra Regional Championship.
The two-day events saw athletes thrill fans with their poise at the Kwame Nkrumah Conference Room of the International Students Guest Centre in Accra as they battle for a place in the national competition in December this year.
Addo, with his dynamism on stage, toppled Lordson Lawrence (5th), Micheal Bortei (4th), Daniel Owusu (3rd) and Emmanuel Odoi (2nd) in the men’s physique while Seidu Omar continued his dominance in the men’s body building category as he toppled Suleiman Ali (4th), Aziz Namiru (3rd) and Bright Holbrook (2nd).
The president of WABBA Ghana, Mr Victor Baiden, told the DAILY HERITAGE in Accra that in just a matter of time WABBA Ghana will turn the bodybuilding industry upside down as they are poised at recruiting quality athletes for Ghana.
According to him, ‘‘the two-day events clearly show the interest and enthusiasm in the sport and it’s only a matter of time we turn this industry upside down. We’re poised in drafting the right athletes with the right mentality and our athletes would have to work really hard to meet the standards.
“’It is more about excellence and the higher we aspire to achieve that the easier it is for the corporate world to come on board and support us and we have to sow that seed and we’re doing the right things.”
