Bodies beautiful were in abundance Sunday evening at the Camp Foster Theater on Okinawa, where 47 contestants put their wares on display in bodybuilding and figure competition at the 2nd Torii Station MWR Muscle Beach Classic.
An appreciative crowd of more than 500 cheered and applauded a three-plus-hour show that featured two International Federation of Body Builders pros: Zoa Linsey, a certified trainer of military and spouses on Okinawa, and Fred “Biggie” Smalls, who’s been on the IFBB circuit entering his fourth year.
Capturing overall honors in men’s bodybuilding was Tomoya Nakadomari, an Okinawa native who captured middleweight honors in June’s Pacific Muscle Classic at Kadena. Women’s overall bodybuilding winner was Hazel Carrico, while Lisa Miosek took the women’s figures overall title.
Miosek also won the women’s figures short class, while Odyssey Unique Martin took the women’s figures tall category. Carrico grabbed the women’s lightweight bodybuilding crown and Martin the women’s heavyweight unopposed.
Men’s individual bodybuilding category winners were Billy Allen Jr. (masters), Mitsuhiro Take (bantamweight), Adam Burns (lightweight), Nakadomari (middleweight), Kenneth Walker (light-heavyweight) and John Hooks won the heavyweight unopposed.
