Sikanda Flexes Muscles to the Top

Kelvin Sikanda claimed top honours at the fifth Nucleus Medicine World Body Building Championship held at the Warehouse Theatre in Windhoek on Saturday.

Sikanda, from the Nucleus gym, was the overall top bodybuilder of the competition, which for the first time also featured a ‘Miss Fitness Bikini’ for female competitors.

Second to Sikanda in the overall stakes was his stable-mate Jorge Quinanga, with Rossouw von Mollendorf, from Virgin Active, in third.

Sikanda also won the light heavyweight division ahead of Stefanus Shikongo and Nigel Mhene, both from the Nucleus Health and Fitness Club as well.

Von Mollendorf was declared the lightweight division champion, with Robert Kamho from the B – Force Gym in second place and Kama Vinga of Virgin Active securing third.

The middleweight division’s top competitor was Lincoln Dames from Virgin Active, followed by Sergio Geiseb and then Jorge Quinanga from Nucleus Health and Fitness Club.

Meanwhile, Nadia Minnie from Windhoek won the women’s contest, edging Anri Jacobs from Swakopmund into second, while Tertia Klazen from Windhoek managed third spot.

Every podium place in each division was worth a medal and a Gift Pack with supplements from MyocellSSN, while each winner received a trophy from Myocell.

The overall winner received N$5 000 in prize money from chief sponsors Myocell.

The next edition of the competition will be held on the first weekend in November 2015 and the organisers hope for an even bigger event.

“Nucleus, Medicine World and Myocell would like to thank Andrew Hudson, a multiple South African super-heavyweight champion for his presence and inputs during the weekend and the competition. Andrew is one of only four professional bodybuilders in South Africa and currently ranked within the top six in the world,” said Henk Cloete, a managing member of the Nucleus Health and Fitness Club.
