It was a great afternoon for youthful body fitness and body-building hopefuls last Friday when the 2012 Tiger Malt-sponsored National Sports Council’s Mr. Schoolboy and Miss Body Fitness Championships were staged at Lester Vaughan School.

Ninety-eight competitors from several primary, secondary and indeed tertiary institutions took to the stage for the exciting competition which saw the participants displaying their form in 11 divisions, ranging from the Tiny Tots to the Senior Boys.

There were a number of outstanding performances, including a repeat for Keiza Goodman-Hinds of George Lamming in the age 9-11 category, the capture of the Mr. Schoolboy crown by last year’s second place finisher Jeffrey Gay and the winning of the Upper Junior Girls (12 to 15) body fitness title by the multi-talented Mary Fraser of St. George Secondary.

Fraser is one of the island’s most promising junior boxers and a high quality cross-country runner.
