As part of Caribbean Wellness Week, we hosted the Mr. Physique Show, at the Fit Park on Sunday 9th September 2018.
The men’s physique competitors were required to present an athletic, symmetrical and fit physique and had to demonstrate overall conditioning and symmetry to their body with defined muscles. Excessive muscularity was scored down as competitors were required not to cross the line into the bodybuilding look.
The competition consisted of three rounds an judging was based on the following criteria:
Round (1): Comparison/Introductory Round
This was just an ice breaker, non-judging, introductory round. Contestants were required to walk on stage as their name was called in board shorts, barefoot and shirt of choice. Shorts had to be above the knee in length and could be one inch below the belly button.
Round (2): Presentation
Competitors were required to walk to the center of the stage alone and perform quarter turns with an optional pose of hand on hip or hand in pocket.
In this round, judges were looking for the participants with the best body symmetry, body contour and leanness.
Round (3): Comparison
The competitors were brought back out in a group and directed to do quarter turns. Judges had the opportunity to compare contestants as they performed quarter turns.
In this round, judges were looking for the contestant with the best stage presence and poise and assessed whether contestants could successfully convey their personality to the audience and stand out.
After three rounds of judging the final results were:
(1st) Mr. Macwhirr Lewis (Anguilla) 89 points
(2nd) Abel Guevara Ulloa (Cuba) 78 points
(3rd) Wingrove Francis (St. Kitts) 57 points
(4th) David Arias (Medical Student)
(5th) Dera Nwosu (United States)
(6th) Dwayne Williams (St. Kitts)
Mr. Lewis walked away with the grand trophy and $1,000.00 US dollars and was definitely a crowd favourite.
This was a fun, well-attended event and we’re looking forward to next year’s event. If you’d like to register to take part in 2019, please contact us.
