Junior Mr. India

The 49th Junior National Body Building Championship was conducted at Kalyan, Maharashtra, on January 30.
Maharashtra won the Team Championship award and the runner-up spot went to Tamil Nadu.
The overall title went to Pramod Palde of Maharashtra while S.K. Mustaque of West Bengal won the best poser award.
The most improved bodybuilder award went to Premraj Arora of Rajasthan.
As regards Tamil Nadu champions, we are proud to announce that R. Munusamy won gold in the 70-kg category.  It was sheer bad luck that E. Karthick, who carried a perfect blend of size, shape, muscularity and conditioning, came close to winning gold in the 80-kg class, yet lost it.  Being the good sportsman he is, Karthick has promised not to feel bad at all and get more amazing and win the top honours in the prestigious events lined up.
