The Belize Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation held its annual Mr. Belize Competition on Friday November 5th at the Bliss Institute of Arts. This marks over 40 years since the competition has been running. President of the federation, Mr. Alfred McKenzie opened the tournament and a total of 8 males and four females competed. The competition was divided into three parts. The Body Building competition up to 170 lbs, the Body Female Figure Open competition, and the Mr. Belize Bodybuilding over 170 lbs. Five judges that had the hard task of judging the competition.

The Bliss Institute of Arts was filled with enthusiastic onlookers and fans that were pretty vocal in their choice in each competition. Introduced in 2004; the female figure competitors were judged on overall athletic appearance of the physique; which takes into consideration the entire physique, beginning with a general presentation, facial features, overall athletic development of the physique, and the ability to present a balanced symmetrically physique. The condition of the skin and skin tone and the athletes' abilities to present themselves with confidence, poise and grace were also key factors in the decision making process.

Competitors in this section were required to have a round and firm appearance with a minimal amount of body fat, and be neither excessively muscular nor excessively lean. Their face, hair and makeup were required to complement the total package presented by the athlete.

At the end of the competition, the judges decided on the winners as follows: 1st place, Kayla Myvette; 2nd place went to Kaima Martinez; 3rd place, Olga Vidas and 4th place went to Gina Lovell. While the audience did not appear to be pleased with the outcome, the judges' rule was final.

The male body building competition had two levels: the under 170lbs and the second level was for body builders measuring over 170 lbs. These competitors were judged on overall shape. In this, the judges should favor competitors with a harmonious, classical physique. The judges look for good posture and athletic bearing, correct anatomical structure (including body framework, broad shoulders, high chest, correct spinal curves, limbs and trunk in good proportion and straight legs).

The judge also look for good skin tone with an absence of surgical or other scars, spots, acne or tattoos, which the IFBB (International Federation of Body Building) considers as a skin blemish, tidily dressed hair, well-shaped feet, and toes. When having difficulty in placing two or more competitors who seem to be on the same level, the judges look for faults in those aspects listed above which will help to differentiate among the competitors.

Then its onto the posing round, where competitors compete in the following poses, exposing their various muscles including the: Front Double Biceps, Front Lat Spread, Side Chest, Back Double Biceps, Back Lat Spread, Side Triceps and Abdominals and Thighs.

At the end of the two competitions, the winners were as follows:

All competitors in the various competitions received trophies. While the judges deliberated, San Pedro resident, Cindy Ayala had a chance to awe the audience with a 90 second pose presentation which saw her flexing the various muscles that she has trained tirelessly to acquire. Initially, Cindy was slated to compete in a Female Body Building competition which should have been part of the competition; however no one else signed up for the competition. Cindy hopes that her presentation will serve to inspire female competitors in up-coming competitions.

San Pedro's Edwin Ramirez brought home the Mr. Belize Body Builder 2010 Trophy as well as placed 2nd, in the Mr. Hercules Competition; a pose off between the two first place winners, Mr. Deon Danderson and Mr. Edwin Ramirez. On Tuesday, November 9th, 2010, in an interview with The San Pedro Sun, Edwin informed us that he was honored to have been able to capture the title of Mr. Belize in the over 170lbs competition. While he hoped to have been able to win the Mr. Hercules title as well, he was optimistic that in the year 2011, he would "take the whole cake".

However, in an interesting turn of events, on Wednesday November 10th, The San Pedro Sun received a press release stating that the judges' scores and statistics were revisited and some of the results were affected. In the female figure, the results are as follows: 1st place- Kayla Myvette, 2nd place- Gina Lovell, 3rd place- Olga Vidas, and 4th place- Kaima Martinez. Furthermore, in the competition for the Hercules trophy, those scores were re-checked and the overall winner in the competition was in fact San Pedro's, Edwin Ramirez, and not Deon Danderson as previously mentioned at the event. The San Pedro Sun congratulates all the competitors, especially our two San Pedro representatives, Edwin Ramirez and Cindy Ayala.

Edwin Ramirez wins 2010 Mr. Belize and Kayla Myvett wins Ms. Bodyfigure

San Pedro’s Edwin Ramirez, a former Mr. Belize, reclaimed his title in the 2010 edition of the Mr. Belize contest held by the Belize Body Building and Body Fitness Association (BBBBFA) at the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts on Friday night.
The contest was held in 2 segments: the under 170lbs division and the over-170lbs division. Defending champ Deon Danderson won the under 170lbs weight division and Dion Ortiz took 2nd place while Allan Halliday claimed 3rd place and Giovanni Gomez had to settle for 4th place.

In the over 170lbs division, Edwin Ramirez displayed such muscle definition and volume in his pectorals, abdominals, deltoids, biceps and triceps, gluteus maximus, thighs and calves that the judges had no choice but to award him the title.
New kid on the block Rigo Vellos was equally well-defined, but Ramirez had the edge in his thigh development; Vellos took 2nd place, but we will hear more from this young man in the future.
Dion Banner had the bulk but not the muscle definition of his rivals, and won 3rd place while Victor Valencia took 4th place. Defending Ms Belize bodyfigure Kayla Myvett won the women’s bodyfigure and fitness competition. Two-time Women’s Cross Country cycling champ Gina Lovell won 2nd place, while Olga Vidas took 3rd place. New kid on the block, the
fastest woman in Central America Kaina Martinez had to be content with 4th place.
Cindy Ayala, who has been living on Caye Caulker for over 15 years and who has operated a spa on San Pedro where she offers massage and physiotherapy took time out to strut her stuff as a guest poser.
The Belize Shotokan Academy under sensei Kelly also gave a demonstration of how the discipline of karate can lead Belizeans to healthier, safer and happier lives. The competition climaxed with a face-off between under170lb champion Dion Danderson and Edwin Ramirez for the Mr. Hercules trophy and Ramirez won, but an error in the judges’ tabulations resulted in Danderson erroneously receiving the trophy from Belize’s delegate to this year’s Miss World Pageant in Sanya, China: Miss Jessel Louriano. The Association promises to correct this error on Saturday.
