World bodybuilding championship 2013
India shines at world championship
World Bodybuilding and Physique Federation conducted world championship body building contest in Hungary from November 13 to 18.
Over 300 competitors from as many as 49 countries participated in it.
I take pride in saying that several champions from India won medals in various weight categories. Our champions such as Rajendran, Murali Kumar, Bobby Singh and Ankur Sharma looked out of the world and made our country proud.
Rajendran – 1st
Murali Kumar – 3rd
Ankur Sharma – 1st
Vijay Bahadur – 4th
Bobby Singh – 2nd
Abdul Ansari – 2nd
Neeraj Kumar – 3rd
IFBB World Championship
Indian team also represented the country at the IFBB World Championship held in Morocco in November.
Karan Singh from Punjab won bronze while many others went up against tough opponents to finish in top 10. The transformation I witnessed in the physiques of champions from my State of Tamil Nadu such as M. Kothandaraman, K. Balamurugan and S. Senthil Kumaran was incredible. I wish them all luck in their next major event.
I wish all our Indian brothers the very best of luck to win world titles and bring glory to our country.
