Inter-district bodybuilding championship

 Our good friend Mr. India (Federation Cup) K . Gopinath conducted an inter-district championship between bodybuilders of Chennai and Tiruvallur on February 6. A total of 136 champions flexed their muscles for the title in eight weight categories.

Karthik was the undisputed overall champion

P. Chilai Mannan, who won the 60 kg class, looked like a real ‘silai’ [statue]. Former Mr. South India S. Murthy outmuscled a fabulous T. Haridoss to win the 65 kg class. That Murthy has just come back from a major accident and is struggling to train his legs is noteworthy. Hats off to this little freak. As regards Haridoss – your time will come brother, you will go places.

In 70 kg category, our dear friend R. Munusamy was the clear winner. Making a comeback in 75 kg class was multi-title winner K. Arunachalam. Welcome back friend, your next stop should be the nationals.

In 80 kg class, Murali Vijayakumar of Team Masters dominated the stage with his newly acquired fullness. Big Lee Murali was really big this time. However, he was not his best as regards conditioning, thanks to a lot of work pressure. Yet, we congratulate the young man for pulling it through difficult times. Get ready to take the next step and move into the world of muscle monsters, Murali. The bigger titles are out there, just for fighters like you.

Karthik's amazing back

E. Karthick, who won the 85 kg class and overall, was the hero of the day. The young man won gold at Junior Mr. Tamil Nadu and silver at Junior Mr. India this year. He was big, hard, ripped and dry, and won the overall championship.

 Talking to Team Masters, this young man said he owes everything to his mentor, former Junior Mr. India Jagannathan. “Jagan anna is everything to me – my coach, brother, friend, all rolled into one. Whatever I am today, the credit goes to him. Please write about him and not me,” said Karthick.

Sure Karthick, we have great respect for Jagan. We salute people like him, who take a lot of interest in helping competitors like you. He has also conducted several competitions to encourage champions like you, and this deserves a lot of praise.

 The evening ended happily with Karthick walking away with the overall trophy and a big smile.
