THE Zambia Body Building and Fitness Federation says the sport needs the support of all sports lovers to help its development in the country.
ZBBFF president Emmanuel Chimuka called on the corporate world to take interest in the inter-gym competitions by adopting some gyms. He said body building was slowly growing in popularity in Zambia.
“There are a lot of gyms out there in our communities but most lack sponsorship. We appeal to business houses to come on board by way of adopting these gyms. This will help develop the sport and our participation in regional and international competitions,” said Chimuka.
“We have noted in the recent past that the sport has been becoming more famous among Zambians, some for health reasons, but slowly we are getting there. I can only tip sponsors and lovers of this sport to take advantage of the inter gym competitions to get into MoUs (memorada of understanding) with these gyms.”
Matero Gym is scheduled to host the annual tournament later this month while Kabwata Gym will host theirs on December 1.
