0 2

In a historic move, the Sri Lanka Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation (SLBFF) is set to open new horizons for schoolchildren by introducing the inaugural Sri Lanka Physique Championships.

This groundbreaking event will take place on September 28 at the S de S Jaysinghe Memorial Hall in Dehiwala, commencing at 8 am onwards.

For the first time in Sri Lanka’s history, aspiring young athletes will have the opportunity to compete in the Physique Category. This competition will also serve as the selection trials for the prestigious IFBB Mr. Universe 2023, scheduled to be held in India from October 20 to 22.

Traditionally, the Physique Championship has been incorporated within the Mr. Sri Lanka Bodybuilding Championships, which boasts a six-decade-long history.

However, this year marks a significant departure from tradition as SLBFF introduces the standalone Sri Lanka Physique Championships, featuring approximately 15 distinct physique categories.

Never before in Sri Lankan history have schoolchildren been granted the chance to participate in a Physique Tournament. This year’s event will feature a dedicated competition category for Junior-level athletes.

The tournament will be conducted across three main categories: Junior, Senior, and Women. The Junior Category will be further subdivided into Men’s Physique Under-20 for schoolboys and Men’s Physique Under-23 up to 171cm.

The Senior Category will include four championships: Men’s Physique, Master Physique, Men’s Classic Physique, and Men’s Classic Bodybuilding. Meanwhile, the Women’s Category will feature Women’s Model Fit Open and Women’s Physique Open divisions. This tournament offers local bodybuilders the unique opportunity to select events that best align with their physique and talents, enhancing their prospects in international competitions.

Approximately 200 male and female athletes are expected to participate in this groundbreaking event. It marks a significant stride towards broadening the horizons of bodybuilding and physique competition in Sri Lanka, offering the nation’s youth a platform to showcase their talent on the international stage.
