Mr. Classic – Inter-district Championship

Dayalan, proprietor of Classic Fitness Centre, Kanchi, organised an Inter-district bodybuilding championship among Chennai and Kanchi on August 21.

Balamurugan’s vascularity helped him get the overall championship

More than 150 competitors participated in the event. It needs special mention that Dayalan has been organising such a competition every year for the past eight years, to mark the anniversary of his gym. This year’s event marks the ninth anniversary and the man has plans to organise a State championship for the 10th year celebration next year.

The champions who finished in top three were showered with gifts such as iron boxes, wrist watches, sweet boxes, soft drinks, shirts, t-shirts, bags, crockery and protein supplements!

Dayalan also presented mementos to all gym owners registered under Kanchi District Amateur Body Building Association to encourage the sport of bodybuilding and fitness.

As regards placing, the overall title went to Balamurugan (65 kg class) of Kanchi. He received bicycle as a special gift. The fight for the overall was close as Balamurugan flexed his muscles standing next to National champion K. Gopinath (75 kg winner) and up-and-coming Murali Vijayakumar (80 kg champ). At the end of all the excitement, Balamurugan’s vascularity helped him finish first.

Murali Vijayakumar got the best poser award, for the second time in two weeks. Audience’s reaction for his robot-like posing and most musculars for the title song from ‘Singam’ was unbelievable. Gopinath was given a special award for being the most seasoned bodybuilder.
