Campbell takes Bronze in Men’s Mr Physique

GUYANA’s four-member team finished with two gold and a bronze medal at the Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Bodybuilding and Fitness Championships which concluded Sunday night in Mexico.

Compliments of bodybuilder, Selvon ‘Bruce’ Whatley (Masters and middleweight gold medallist) and Emmerson Campbell (Men’s Mr Physique), Team Guyana was able to earn hardware at the 45th edition of the championships held in Mexico City. The nation’s other representatives, Caerus Cipriani (Men’s Mr Physique) and Alisha Fortune (Body Fitness) were not as fortunate.

Cipriani fell just short of the podium, finishing fourth in his class (under 182cm) of six, while Fortune was unable to make it in the final six after pre-judging. 

After the weekend’s outing, Whatley’s medal count swelled to four for the last two CAC events. In 2016, he snared a gold and a silver in The Dominican Republic.

The annual fixture was cancelled last year following the hurricanes that ravaged parts of the Caribbean and the earthquakes in Mexico.

It was the second CAC medal for Campbell, a three-time and reigning national physique champion. At his last outing, he won silver in his class.

Campbell thanked Fitness Express, the National Sports Commission/ Ministry of Social Cohesion, Bounty Farm Ltd, the local bodybuilding federation and others for making his sojourn a success.

Grenadian, Damion Daniel received his IFBB Elite Pro Card after winning the bodybuilding overall title.

The 46th edition of the event is scheduled for Puerto Rico next year.
