Federation Cup Inter-State Bodybuilding Championship

A plan that goes unfulfilled leaves behind more bruises than a lost battle. Team Masters underwent that pain recently, not once but twice!

A couple of much-awaited trips to Thrissur to attend the Federation Cup and Coonoor, Nilgiris,

for the 19th Jr. Tamil Nadu Bodybuilding Championship evaporated right in front of our eyes.

Members of Team Masters were helpless and forced to choose between their passion for the muscle festivals or their bread and butter job. Unable to listen to the voice of our hearts, we had to go by the diktats of our brains.

However, the results of Federation Cup, where Tamil Nadu lost Team Championship by a very close 1 point (!!!!!!) came as a small relief. On second thoughts, we were rather upset, I should say.

“Damn, one point is s@*$#,” I yelled at my team mates on hearing the news. But, I am sure that the day is not far away when our young lions of Tamil Nadu are going to roar big-time at the Nationals and grab that long-awaited No. 1 spot.

While wishing all competitors the very best of luck, I do offer a piece of my mind. “My dear brothers, ours is a sport in which a person can participate until he turns even 90 or more. It just calls for taking good care of the body and health and being smart. Good Luck.”

  6. Dear David,
    I am not a judge or competition organiser. To be very honest, I don’t have any power or I don’t hold ANY post in ANY association.
    I am just an ordinary guy who trains hard, like any of my brothers. I respcet every hard working bodybuilder and persons who are cloe to me know that.
    I 100 per cent agree with your feeling that placing should come ONLY because of merit and there should be no recommendation.

    And about competition announcement: I used to post information on the blog about competitions that were planned. Somehow, that went out of my mind for sometime due to various pressures and other reasons.
    I will try my best to inform friends like you through the blog if any competitio is being held.
    If you are a competitor, I wish you lot of success to win several more titles in the future.
    If you are a trainer, I wish all your guys the very best of luck to win medals in all their competitions.
