If you were watching the Despierta Belice show last Friday, you would have been put on notice by Mr. Belize Rigo Vellos that a Muscle Mania bodybuilding event would be held by the Bodybuilding Federation in the Belize City over the weekend. Vellos didn’t participate in the competition but his gym, Spartan Fitness, was represented by two up-and-coming athletes.
Rigo Menjivar participated in the Open Bodybuilding and placed 4th, behind senior bodybuilders David Requena, 2nd place M’Wafrice Hynds and 1st place Clayton Greenidge.
Wendy Lizarraga placed third in the Open Bikini Fitness behind Fiona Malic who placed 2nd and Annlyn Apolonio who took 1st place.
As for Vellos, on Friday he told us of his plans to participate in the Arnold Classic international bodybuilding competition in Columbus, Ohio from March 2nd to 5th. We hope to catch Vellos before he flies out.
