Possibly for the first time in the history of bodybuilding in Guyana, prison inmates will
be competing with athletes from other gyms nationally and internationally at the Flex Night International event which will be held on Sunday December 7 at the National Cultural Centre. This development takes to another level the unfolding three-way relationship that involves Flex Night Incorporated, Demerara Mutual Life Assurance Society Ltd. and the Guyana Prison Service.
The Georgetown Prison now boasts a gym facility – Republicans Flex-In Gym – the result of financial support from Demerara Mutual Life Assurance Society Ltd, and technical assistance from Directors of Flex Night Inc.
This initiative itself grew out of a paradigm shift announced by the Minister of Home Affairs in 2012 whereby the emphasis would fall more upon correction and rehabilitation than upon punishment.
With financial inputs from Demerara Mutual, an MOU was signed, equipment was acquired and both inmates and officers were trained in the essentials of gym management and basic training techniques.
The entire sporting establishment will, on December 7, be applauding this breakthrough on the part of Flex Night Inc. and the Guyana Prison Service in attracting those representatives to the bodybuilding stage. The event starts at 18:00hrs sharp.
