The Ghana Bodybuilding & Fitness Association (GBFA), will organise series of events, today as part of activities marking Ghana’s 62nd Independence anniversary celebrations.
Mr Abdul Haye Yartey, President of the GBFA said, the programme would start at Dansoman Emmanuel Presby Church where mass aerobics and physical training sessions would be held.
The group will move to the Independence Square at Osu, for a photo shoot with stars and celebrities in the body building family.
He said, the programme would later be moved to the Osu Ebenezer Presby Hall for the climax show of body flexing.
Mr Yartey said, the programme was his first, after he was re-elected for the third time and was bent on staging a show that will entertain patrons.
On show today will be the Men’s Physique and Bikini show by top male and female body building models, adding that as part of efforts to attract more fans to the hall, admission would be free.
He commended the media for promoting the Independence Day event and appealed for support and sponsorship from companies.
He noted that the sport was attractive in advanced countries and it was about time the government gives them support, because the best body builder on the continent of Africa was Ghanaian.
He said the Flex Night of Champions Bodybuilding Overall Winner would take home a special sword. –GNA
