The South African Natural Bodybuilding Association’s (SANBBA) development championship was held in Paarl in the Western Cape on 22 July. Two of the Northern Cape’s most promising bodybuilders competed in the bantam weight division.Ebenheizer Nero (22) and Reginald Solomon (24), who have been training at a local gym in Kimberley under the watchful eye of seasoned coach Titch Markham, excelled. Effort, discipline and intensive training secured them a third and fourth place in each respective category. According to Markham, these two have been training for the past 11 months. That meant hours of hard work, adjusting their training programs and nutritional programs and peaking at exactly the right time for the championship. They will be on a strict program in preparation for the SANBBA national championship at the Bellville Civic Centre in Cape Town on 29 and 30 September.
