However, on Sunday evening, the senior bodybuilder made sure that he would take home the accolade once again. On stage with four other successful bodybuilders, Clarke came out flexing his biceps and triceps with one goal on his mind, winning.With last year’s Mr Guyana, Bruce Whatley absent, it was a no-brainer for Clarke who flexed his way to the top. Speaking on the win, he noted that he was grateful to everyone who has been a part of his journey. “First and foremost, I’d like to give thanks to the Almighty; I’d also like to extend sincere gratitude to Mr Ross, my training team, my family, and Fitness Express,” he stated.The well-decorated bodybuilder went on to share a little about the expectations heKerwyn Clarke receives his prize after copping the coveted titlehad for the competition. “This year’s competition wasn’t as expected, I was most disappointed in the turnout, I was expecting a higher intensity of competition on the stage from my fellow counterparts. And I was expecting also the reigning Mr Guyana, Mr Whatley to be here on stage so that I could have taken it from him rightfully.”Nevertheless, Clarke noted that he was now focused on his Central American and Caribbean (CAC) championships campaign, stating, “It didn’t happen that way, but I am still very thankful and I’ll just set out to CAC, which is my next venture.”In another instance, another bodybuilding crown was snatched back by its previous owner. Emmerson Campbell reclaimed his title of Mr Physique after showcasing a well-oiled body and flashy smile. The title was stolen in the 2017 competition by Yannick Grimes.Guyana Amateur Bodybuilding Federation President Coel Marks highlighted that the event was a success despite a few hiccups along the way. “In terms of attendance, we did see that we as per normal had great numbers at the show. We had a few hiccups in terms of the hosting and venue and technical difficulties with the audio, but the show must go on and we were able to host another successful bodybuilding event in Guyana,” he stated.The President of the Federation also disclosed that his team will work harder to improve the competition in the coming years, stating: “We hope that we are able to continue doing so, going forward next year and make it more robust and make sure that we continue to fulfil our mandate as bodybuilders in Guyana.”The winners at Sunday evening’s competition will now set their sights on the CAC championship, which is scheduled for July 27-29 in Mexico.last_img
