The best local athletes in the body building sector, male and female will be taking on their counterparts from Suriname this evening when the 2015 edition of Flex Night International (FNI) comes off at the National Cultural
Centre from 18:00hrs.
Regarded as one of the best bodybuilding shows locally in every aspect, Flex Night International 2015 promises to be the best yet and will be declared open by Minister Cathy Hughes.
Local and foreign athletes have been working over the past months to whip their bodies into the best possible shape in order to walk away with the various category prizes and ultimately, the Mr. Flex Night International title and bragging rights.
According to FNI Managing Director, Donald Sinclair, both the local and foreign athletes are eager to take on each other for the top prizes at stake. Sinclair noted that sponsors have truly rallied behind the event, informing that COPA Airlines is offering a return ticket to New York as a gate prize.
The top athletes will be rewarded handsomely with all finalists to be rewarded with trophies or medals while the top four in the overall to receive additional cash.
Sinclair commented on the level of competition anticipated from the overseas athletes: “ This year it will be a tough call for the locals, since the Suriname contingent and the USA competitor are all in fine shape, but the local men and women are ready for battle.”
Set to attract close to 60 athletes on stage, Sinclair is firmly of the view that this year’s event will be the best ever since 98% of the competitors are stage ready veterans added to the fact that Suriname has sent their special forces. Also, about 12 athletes will appear on stage from the Prison Service where Flex Night has been set up a gym in association with Demerara Life Insurance Company.
Patrons are asked to be on time for the traditional parade of athletes which will commence at 18:00hrs sharp. Tickets will cost $1,500 and it would be open seating.
