Mr Borneo is on – SBBA

15th September, 2020

By FRANCIS XAVIER

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Bodybuilding Association (SBBA) will go ahead with its plan to organise the Mr Borneo Bodybuilding and Physique Championship 2020, at least for now.

Its President, Joannes Staneslous said the annual championship will take place at the KDCA Hall on December 18.

“It was decided during our organising committee meeting recently that we will proceed with the staging of the Mr Borneo. Hopefully, the COVID-19 situation in the country, particularly in Sabah, will improve by then,” said Joannes when contacted yesterday.

He said they will adhere to all the Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) that have been set by the relevant authorities.

“We will look into every aspect in terms of the SOPs as well as the safety of the athletes, officials as well as supporters. We will be limiting the number of people that can be inside the hall at any time of the championship,” he said before calling on all interested bodybuilders and physique athletes to submit their entry as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

“We are now living in a new normal and for the first time, we will be staging a championship under this new norm and of course we will be limiting the entries. But for now, we are still working on it and will make a final decision on the matter very soon,” he added.

He revealed that there will be eight categories to be competed in the one-day championship.

The first two categories are the men’s bodybuilding closed championship 70kg and above and 70kg and below.

“For these two categories, it is a closed championship and it is only open to Sabah bodybuilders and those who have been residing in the state for not less than six months and the entry is free.”

He said top five winners of these categories will walk away with RM300, RM250, RM200, RM150 and RM100 respectively.

The next five categories are men’s athletic physique 170cm and above, men’s athletic physique 170cm and below, women’s athletic physique (open), women’s body beautiful and men’s body beautiful.

For these five categories, the entry fee is RM100. The top five winners of each category will be rewarded with RM1,000, RM800, RM500, RM300 and RM200 respectively. Joannes said the main event will be Mr Borneo.

“For the Mr Borneo, it is open to athletes from Sabah as well as Sarawak, Brunei, Labuan and Kalimantan, Indonesia,” said Joannes, adding that athletes are allowed to take part in more than one category.

For Mr Borneo, which is a bodybuilding contest, the entry fee is also RM100.

The champion would pocket RM2,000 prize money, RM1,000 for runners-up, while third to fifth-placed winners will be rewarded with RM800, RM500 and RM300 respectively.

Joannes said the deadline for registration is on December 16.

He added that the pre-judging for all the categories will be held from 8.30am to 4pm while the final from 7pm-9.30pm.
