State’s lifters on display with their body of work
Muscling in: Dominic Vrolijks, 24, and Anna Gleeson, 23, both of Launceston, will be competing at the titles after training together.The Earl Arts Centre will host the competition, which will see 18 entrants muscling in for a place at the national championships in Canberra later this month.
“Hopefully someone from Tasmania will then qualify for Natural Olympia or the World Titles in the US or New Zealand respectively,” organiser Don Macdonald said.
The fifth annual competition will feature more than six divisions for both male and female body-builders, who will be assessed by a panel of seven judges.
Among those will be former US Navy power-lifting champion Ernest Ervin, who has moved to Tasmania.
Launceston body-builder Dominic Vrolijks, 24, who will this year compete at the State titles for a second time, has drawn flatmate Anna Gleeson, 23, into the competition.
“We train together and live together, have a similar diet and similiar training schedule, so we’re pretty supportive of each other in that way,” Vrolijks said yesterday.
“It’s only her first go but I’m sure she’ll do quite well.”
All profits from the titles will be donated to the Tasmanian Acquired Brain Injury Services support group. Tickets cost $19 for adults and $10 for concession.
