SA’s ‘best body’ to compete in Vegas

2012-08-17 06:57

Jaco de Bruyn, who has been described as the man with the best body in South Africa, will be competing in an international fitness competition in the US later this year.

According to Afrikaans daily Volksblad, De Bruyn (28) will travel to Las Vegas in November to compete in the Fitness America Weekend and he will be competing for the title of Mr Physique.

De Bruyn told Volksblad: “I am very excited and proud to be invited. It makes all the hours in the gym worth it. I am no bodybuilder, but rather focused on fitness. I will do my best for South Africa.”

De Bruyn has many titles under his belt, including Model of the Year in 2009 and Heat Manwatch Winner in the same year.

He was also the first runner-up in Mr South Africa in 2009 and currently holds the Body Beautiful South Africa title which he will be defending in September.
