Last October 15th, Yayasan Bodiku Bali Age and the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness Indonesia (IFBB) welcomed Indonesia’s best athletes to compete in the 2017 Muscle Beach Bali Championship at Finn’s Beach Club – Canggu – Bali.
Muscle Beach Bali is the creation of World Champion bodybuilder Komang Arnawa in his desire to provide a platform for Indonesian athletes to achieve event qualification and progress to the IFBB International stage. Funds from ticket sales contribute to sponsoring the top athletes in competitions abroad.
The annual event has also become a platform to celebrate healthy living and all the positive traits that accompany a healthy mind and body. One hundred and twenty (120) competitors presented themselves in amazing physical shape before a crowd of nearly 1200 spectators. The 2017 championship attracted a variety of nationalities, including Australian, German, Russian, French, Italian and Romanian competitors, who have made Indonesia their home.
Celebrities including Bobby Ida, Christie Bailey, Puteri Bali 2017 and members of Bali’s Tourism board also joined the fun to celebrate a Life In Balance – the theme of this year’s event.
An international panel of judges was challenged with the task of narrowing the field of participants down to 6 finalists in 7 categories:
Female Fitness Model
Mr & Ms International
After the preliminary judging, Bali tourists and residents were treated to an inspirational and entertaining finals show, commencing with a female fire breather, to light the flame of competition ‘Muscle Beach Bali’ style. It was a night to remember!
