Overall winner for the Man Sports Physique Vincent Duval of New Caledonia dedicated his success to coach Jean Firmain.

Duval could not hide his joy after he won a gold medal during the South Pacific Bodybuilding Championships at the Grand Pacific Hotel, Suva last night.

Speaking to SUNsports, Duval said he’s surprised with the win.

“I was not really expecting to win,” he said.

“I’m really happy being named the overall winner. This is the first time for me to take part in this category and I just can’t believe that I have reached this far.

“Preparation was tough but I managed to hang in and make the trip to Suva.”

Duval added that he has benefited a lot from the competition.

“I’m hoping that I will be selected to take part in the world championship in Thailand in December,” he added.

Competition was still going on when this edition went to press last night. Check tomorrow’s paper for the overall results.
