Phuket Classic competition to attract 145 bodybuilders [VIDEO] | Thaiger

PHUKET: This year’s edition of the Phuket Classic bodybuilding competition will see 145 contestants flex their muscles to please the audience.

The event will be held at Central Festival Phuket on October 12, from 11am to 7pm and will see 10 foreigners competing in a separate category.

“The judges will be evaluating the contestants depending on body type, weight and race. What they are looking for are beautiful, symmetrical muscles,” explains Wilaiporn Wannaklang, president of the event’s organizer, the Phuket Bodybuilding Club.

“Not only does size matter, but also the shape and general elegance of movements.”

According to Ms Wilaiporn, preparing for the competition demands great effort and a lot of sacrifices including a strict diet and many hours spent at the gym. This is something she knows a lot about, having herself won the first place in the 2012 World Bodybuilding & Physique Federation (WBPF) Women Bodybuilding (50kg class), the Championship at the 2010 and 2012 Thailand National Games Women’s Bodybuilding Open, the 2012 Siam Classic Women’s Bodybuilding Open, and first place in the Women’s Bodybuilding class at the Mr Thailand competition.

Although the Phuket Classic event is divided into 12 different categories, it is the “Men’s Model Physique” that’s the most competitive.

“It is the first step in muscle building and it is easier for people to get into,” explains Ms Wilaiporn.

She also suggests that the audience keep an eye on some of the contestants, including last year’s champion Pornpaisan Ruangsang-pen and Pattaya competition winner Rattapol Mookdasanit.

The Phuket Classic is the only event of its nature in Thailand supported by the World Bodybuilding and Physique Sports Federation and is set to provide the audience with heaps of motivation for a more healthy, fitness-driven lifestyle as well as numerous opportunities to snap photos of and with the muscular champions.

The Phuket Gazette and PGTV’s ‘Phuket Today’ show, the island’s only nationally broadcast television program (aired daily on True Visions channels HD-79 and
SD-107), are proud to sponsor this event.

This year’s Phuket Classic will also feature a model physique “glamour girl” class.
