2017 Diamond Cup Portugal
Irish bodybuilder Blessing Awodibu defeated great athletes in the Super Heavy weight category such as Ole Vaaga (Silver Medal; Norway) and Deividas Dubinas (Bronze; Lithuania). Blessing then made his way to what would be a great battle for the overall title, where other champions as Piotr Borecki (Poland), Marcos Herrera (Spain) and Kille Kujala & Mika Sihvonen (Finland) were not ables to beat him.
As an unknown athlete, Awodibu was just an spectator at the 2016 Arnold Classic Europe when he announced his goal to be, in this edition of the Diamond Cup as a competitor. Now, he has the right to apply for his Pro Card, but his goal remains the same, to be in Barcelona at the Arnold Classic Europe, in September, where he is now one of the favorites for the awards.
