One of Guyana’s most consistent performers on the bodybuilding stage, Devon Davis of the Guyana Defence Force Gym made himself and country proud once again when he won the Flyweight (Under 132lbs) division at the 42nd Central American and Caribbean Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation Championships which took place over the weekend (October 4-5) in Saint Marten.
Davis put his stamp on this category at the CAC with his third consecutive gold to join illustrious company in fellow Guyanese Sylvan Gardner who won three consecutive Bantamweight gold medals in 2002, 2003 and 2004 in Venezuela, Bahamas and Guyana when this nation hosted in 2004.
