Bahamas To Flex Its Muscles At CAC Championships This Weekend

Over 41 countries are expected in The Bahamas this weekend for the 43rd Central American Caribbean Bodybuilding (CAC) Championships that will be held at Atlantis Paradise Island from September 24-27.

It’s The Bahamas’ eighth time hosting the event.

The last time the country hosted the competition was in 2008.

Project Manager Nardo Dean said the country is expected to welcome nearly 2,000 people for the event.

But Mr. Dean noted that the event will also be a full showcase of Bahamian culture.

“It’s not just bodybuilding. The show has expanded now and we have the physique positions now, the bikini category and the fitness categories. So it has expanded to just all muscles on stage. It is now displaying different aspects of the physical forms in terms of their athletic ability and so there is something there for everyone, ” he said.

 High school students are also invited to the event.

“They will be exposed to a level of competition that they probably would not get to see on their own,” he said.

 “So this opens the door to them and they have a special rate,” Mr. Dean said.

Executive Director of the CAC Championships Kenny Green said officials are hoping to see Bahamian pride in full force.

 “It is a fun-filled family event. We want the general public to come out and support its team because we are going to keep the gold here. Our expectations are very high,” he said,

 Meanwhile, officials say Team Bahamas is ready to go.

 “We have been mentoring but they are at home and they have the advantage,” Mr. Dean said.

"We have the opportunity to put in an A and B team and we are confident that we are going to bring home one or to pro cards and the gold for The Bahamas.”
