With close on 60 athletes and a capacity crowd, the KZN IFBB Novice Classic got the 2008 Bodybuilding calendar off to an exciting start on Saturday, 12 April at the Durban Jewish Centre.

Congratulations to Mthokozisi Duma who stood out in the overall line up. In a hotly contested show, it was an extremely conditioned and enthusiastic Duma who placed 1st Overall.

Duma, the welterweight winner, had all the qualities that made him a winner, great structure, balance, symmetry and conditioning – a clear and worthy winner who had really done his homework.

Every year the standard of the Novice athletes improves, with the 2008 IFBB KZN Novice Champs being one of the best shows in years.

Sponsors of the show, SSN & BodyGuru wish the KZN team the best of success at the IFBB SA Novice Championships taking place in Rustenburg on 3rd May.
