Barry Copilah was crowned men’s Body Building Overall National Junior champion after he got the judges nod ahead of four other category winners when the 2018 T&T Body Builders & Fitness Federation National Junior Body Building & Fitness Championship took place on Saturday night.

Competing before an appreciative crowd at Cascadia Hotel & Conference Centre, Cascade, St Ann’s, Copilah, who turned 30 years-old on May 10, and trains at the Fyzabad Health & Fitness Gym, first walked away with the men’s light middleweight (up to 80 kg) division crown ahead of Watson Jeremiah and Garth Charles.

A winner at last year’s Sportsworld Classic event, Copilah then faced off with the other category winners in Prateesh Ragnoobar (lightweight), Nicholas Ramoutar (welterweight), Bernado E. Lawson (middleweight) and Evan Jackson John (light heavyweight) and was declared the overall winner.

Ramoutar was second overall followed by Lawson, John and Ragnoobar.

The other National Junior Overall Class winners on the night were Gulf View Health & Fitness’ Marisa Khan-Lutchman (Women’s Physique); Raw Fitness’ Roxanne Moore-Mahabir (Body Fitness); Ramoutar (Classic Body Building); Gulf View Health & Fitness, and Life Fitness member, Kaylah Martinez (Bikini Wellness); another Gulf View Health & Fitness member Rondell Paul (Men’s Physique), and, Central Athletic West Mall (formerly Bio Fitness) athlete Brittany De Freitas, (Bikini).

According to Susanna Hadad, President of the T&T Body Builders & Fitness Federation, the winners of their respective titles may now have the chance to represent T&T at the upcoming Central American and Caribbean Body Building and Fitness Championships which comes off in Mexico from July 26-29.

Hadad explained that once the local body thinks the T&T athletes are up to the standard to compete for top honours, then arrangements will be made to have them fly the red, white and black flag.
