Jordan Pillay will be making his debut at the 2018 Suva Classic Competition at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva on Saturday.

He will compete in the Open Physique competition in the Fiji Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation-sanctioned event.

The 24-year-old, who was raised in Suva’s Rewa Street but currently resides in Lautoka.has been involved with the sport for the last three years.

“This is my first Suva Classic Open physique competition and my target is top the grade,”he said.

He needs to qualify to take part in the South Pacific Bodybuilding Championship to be held in Fiji from October 26-28 and Mr Fiji in November.

He is looking forward to seeing his fellow competitors and all the hard work they have also put in to reach where they are now.

“I think that no matter who places first I believe each and every competitor is a winner, because being able to reach this far is a great achievement in itself,”he said.

His late father James Pillay, always admired men with an amazing physique.

“I told myself one day I will make him proud and achieve a body better than he can imagine,” he said,

The 2017 Suva Classic men’s physique title holder, Shaneel Goundar said competition is fun and each competition enhances the knowledge of local athletes.

“The Federation is inviting enthusiasts, supporters and future athletes to rally behind the country’s top bodybuilders and witness the evolving sport. It’s not always about building muscles but also raising awareness on mental discipline and simply staying fit and healthy,”Goundar said.

Tickets are on sale from the USP and Metro Gym at $15 per person. Contact Ronal Rishay on 9026246 and Vijit Prasad on 9470688.
