And the Lautoka businessman wants to give back to the sport which has been very much part of his life over the years.

He was the event organizer of the 2016 Bodyworks Championship which was held at the Fiji Arts Club in Suva last Saturday.

“I want to give back to the sport that is the foundation of my success over the years,”Veeran said.

“We have tremendous potential in Fiji and athletes need proper guidance.

“The event over the weekend went really well and I’m happy with the turnout.”

Sixteen athletes took part with seven competing for the overall Mr Bodyworks title, two female athletes competed for the Bodyworks, Miss Figure title and seven competitors tussled for the introductory division – Bodyworks Men Open Physique division.

Veeran said sponsors and athletes were happy with how well the competition was organized.
