Official and Final Results have now been posted.
We would like to advise that the winners announced on the day of the event of the Masters and Grand Masters Bodybuilding have been disqualified from the competition due to returning a positive drug test at the 2016 Musclemania Australia Championships held in September. The competitor’s have been sanctioned and will therefore not be able to compete in any Natural Bodz Events or Musclemania World Wide Events for their sanctioned period.
Therefore the placings have changed with the winners of the respective categories being Brett Maguire (Masters) and Paul Gibney (Grand Masters). This also saw Jim Hosie move up in to 2nd place in the Masters category and Beau Jones move into 2 place in the Under 80kgs category.
We are disappointed that the rightful winners and placings were not able to be awarded on the day, however we are serious about providing Natural Athletes an even and level playing field and proud to show that we have legitimate professional drug testing in place and that our events are truly Drug Tested Events.
Competitors are ultimately responsible for all or any products or substances they take/use or found in their body whether it be knowingly or unknowingly, so we urge all athletes to be vigilant and aware of what substances are contained in products/supplements they choose to use. We hope that it is acknowledged that our organisation is serious about our sport and keeping it clean so that Natural Athletes have a world class platform to shine upon.
On a positive note both Brett Maguire & Paul Gibney have both now qualified to compete in the Natural Bodz Pro League at the 2017 Australian Natural Bodz Asia Pacific Championships www.anbasiapacific.com in June.
Congratulations to both of these outstanding athletes, and thanks for being great ambassadors for Natural Bodybuilding.
Yours in Health & Fitness
