ZAMBIA will be represented by 20 bodybuilders during the Southern Africa Bodybuilding Championship slated for Lusaka this month-end.
Among the bodybuilders is former Mr Zambia Sylvester Mwila.
Zambia Bodybuilding Federation (ZBBF) president Danny Mkandawire said in Lusaka yesterday that preparations are on course.
“We are preparing very well and chances are high that we will win,” Mkandawire said.
The ZBBF stripped Mwila of his title last year and banned him for two years after he allegedly made disparaging remarks about the K1,500 prize money.
The tournament set for September 26th has attracted Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
Meanwhile, the ZBBF has raised K89,500 from the budgeted K203,040.
“As ZBBF, we have raised K36,000. Zamtel has given us K50,000 and Fuse Number Plate has given us K3,500,” Mkandawire said.
