‘Rahul Gandhi Classic’

Inter-districts body building championship
June 19 will be a red letter day in the annals of body building in Tamil Nadu.
Babu of Sky Gym [known as ‘Sky’ Babu in Tamil Nadu Amateur Body Building Association] did the unthinkable by organising inter- districts body building championship with a prize money of Rs.1 lakh for the overall winner! The competition was held at Sir Theyagaraya Arts & Science College, T.H. Road, Chennai 21.

Munusamy is sure to rock the nationals, win gold and bring laurels to Tamil Nadu

We take our hats off to this amazing gentleman who has showered cash prizes that are perhaps offered only at the Nationals. Another gentleman who deserves praise is ‘Royapuram’ Mano of the Congress party who worked with Babu in organising and sponsoring this competition. The efforts of Suresh of Youth Congress in working with Babu and Mano deserve special mention. Chennai-based television channel, Vasanth TV, gave a live coverage of the entire competition. The chief guest at the event was Union Minister of Shipping and Congress leader G.K. Vasan. He was in all praise of the awesome threesome in organising such a fantastic event to mark the birthday of “the future of the Congress party,” Rahul Gandhi.

The condition Munusamy displayed at the prejudging was a sight to behold

As regards cash prize, the winner of each category was given Rs. 10,000; second place finisher Rs. 5,000 ; and third place finisher, Rs. 3000/-. Though all champions who won the title in each class were in great condition, Munusamy of 65 kg class was the hero of the day. The condition he displayed at the prejudging was a sight to behold. It has been a long time since any of us had seen a thing like this – he was a mini Li John and Bobby Singh rolled into one. He was full, ripped and dry. Each muscle stood out as if there was no skin covering it. Munusamy is sure to rock the nationals, win gold and bring laurels to Tamil Nadu.

M. Venkatesh who won the title in 75 kg category, a national champion, was also in very good shape. V. Senthil Kumar of Tiruvallur, who has been State champion several times, was at his best and rocked the 55 kg class.

V. Murugan and E. Karthik were also clear winners of their classes.
