BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPS – DAY 1 ROUND-UP
Five UKBFF athletes were awarded IFBB Elite Pro cards on a thrilling first day of the 2018 British Championships in Nottingham. Marta Mila (bikini fitness), El Noval (men’s physique), Kristie Sanderson (bodyfitness), Alaura Galeru (wellness) and Mahmoud Elmawardy (muscular men’s physique) claimed the major honours on a day that saw 253 athletes take to the stage.
As usual, day one focused on the less extreme categories before bodybuilding commands centre stage tomorrow. The standard throughout the 10-hour muscle marathon was exceptional.
It was also announced that next year’s English Grand Prix has been upgraded to an IFBB Diamond Cup event. A strong international contingent is expected to fly in to compete alongside the best of British for IFBB Elite Pro cards at the event, which will be held on June 23 and 24 in Reading. READ MORE
