The Power Plant Gym athlete was also unstoppable in the middleweight (154-176 lbs) category.

The night's proceedings were graced with the presence of Central American and Caribbean champion Lindon Belgrave who is also Barbados' national champion.

According to reports, Belgrave wooed the appreciative audience with his physique and posing routine.

The Mr. Guyana lightweight (under 154 lbs) title went to Interline Fitness Gym's Anthony Thom. Second in this category was Sylvon Gardner (Power Plant Gym) while Linden Burnett of Muscle and Beauty Gym placed third.

Kingsrow Barbell Club's Junior Dey won the Mr Guyana Heavyweight (over 176 lbs) title from Troy Johnson (Fitness Paradise Gym). There was a tie for third between Charles Henry (Upper Demerara Barbell Club) and Eustace `Robo Cop' Abrams (Body Image Gym).

Because there was only one entry for the Ms Guyana title, that category was not contested, instead, the competitor - Geraldine Benn - entertained the audience as a guest poser.

General Secretary of the Guyana Amateur Bodybuilding Federation, Donald Sinclair, commenting on the championships, said, there was marked improvement at this year's competition, compared to last year.

"All the bodybuilders showed improvement this year" Sinclair said.

The General Secretary said he is a bit disappointed with the poor response from the females but overall, he is pleased with the performance of the musclemen and the appreciative audience.

Sinclair would like to thank Banks DIH Limited, Pharmagen Enterprises and National Bank of Industry and Commerce for their support in this year's championships.
