The name Koese Soepe may be difficult for many Guyanese to pronounce, but those who watched his performance at the 2012 Flex Night International can’t forget the smiling manner in which he won the hearts of the Guyanese audience at the National Cultural Centre, and conquered the field of bodybuilders who possessed physiques
much larger than his own.
Last Saturday in Paramaribo, Koese Soepe turned in an encore performance when he won the Mr. Suriname title for the second successive year, defeating the likes of Melvyn Setropawiro and eight other contenders.
Soepe’s victory in Paramaribo (as well as his success at the 2012 Flex Night International) has been likened to the little axe that cuts down the big tree. Soepe is very short by bodybuilding standards; measuring under 5ft in height.
He is, however, able to pack an enormous amount of muscle on that otherwise diminutive frame, presenting an extremely balanced and symmetrical body that clearly stands out on stage regardless of who has the misfortune of standing next to him.
The good (or bad) news for Guyanese bodybuilders is that Koese Soepe has his eyes set on retaking the title of Mr. Flex Night International which he won in 2012. Can this Suriname legend be stopped? Only time will tell.
Was Jagdeo honest when he made those promises?
