GANGTOK: The 1st Junior Mr Sukhim, 2nd Senior Mr Sukhim and Open Men’s & Women’s Physique Championship will be held at auditorium of NBBD College at Tadong here on March 14.

Bodybuilding & Powerlifting Association of Sikkim general secretary Pema W. Bhutia said that the aim of organising the event is to “groom bodybuilders from a young age and engage them into healthy and fit lifestyle.” He appealed the public to witness the championship and encourage the aspiring body builders.

Entry is free.

Vice president Yogesh Rai said the Bodybuilding & Powerlifting Association of Sikkim is affiliated to Indian Body Building Federation and recognised by Ministry of Sports & Youth Affairs. This will help the body builders acquire jobs through sports quota, he added.
