MANDEVU Gym proprietor David Kasongo says the enthusiasm by bodybuilders at his gym has prompted him to host a communal competition for them.
This will be the first time a bodybuilding tournament is hosted in Mandevu, which is the biggest constituency in Lusaka.
Kasongo, popularly known as PDK, said a K100,000 budget had been drawn for the tournament although the date is yet to be announced.
“You know our gym is very new but we have a number of bodybuilders who are doing very well. I was encouraged by the bodybuilders to host the first ever Mr Mandevu by the bodybuilders because of their commitment to the gym and the sport,” he said.
“We have set a total budget of K100,000 for this event and we will set the date as soon as Mr. Matero is hosted because we do not want to clash with their tournament because we need to support each other. The bodybuilders are currently consistent with training and we expect tough competition come the competition day.”
Winner of the tournament is expected to pocket K5,000 with the runner-up getting K3,000 and third position holder will get K2,000.
