The Muscle Fly and Strength Bodybuilding Championship is scheduled to take place at the Alisa Hotel on May 4.

The championship, organised by the Ghana Chapter of the World Amateur Bodybuilding Association (WABBA), is to serve as a justifier for Ghanaian bodybuilders ahead of the World Championship in Lviv, Ukraine, scheduled to take place from June 14 – 16.

Mr. Victor Baiden, President of WABBA Ghana, in an interview with the GNA Sports said, the championship would help to assess the condition of the athletes and their preparation for the World stage.

"I believe Ghana has what it takes to be a force on the international scene. It would also offer the platform to help improve bodybuilders and showcase their talents to the world,” he added.

According to the President, WABBA Ghana was gradually fulfilling its dreams of taking bodybuilding to another level in accordance with statues of its mother body WABBA International based in the United Kingdom.

"We want to bring prestige to the sport of bodybuilding and we want our bodybuilders to be seen as good athletes ready for the international world".

Mr. Baiden said, WABBA Ghana was focused on propelling the sport to greater heights and has set a 2020 target for this agenda.

This year's championship would see various athletes compete in men's bodybuilding, men's physique, bikini fitness among other categories, like lightweight, middleweights and heavyweights.
