Kenya’s top ranked woman bodybuilder Evelyn Okinyi will showcase her prowess at the Africa bodybuilding Championships in Angola.

Kenya Body Building Federation Chairman Chris Omedo said Akinyi will be among Africa’s top ranked muscle women at the championships to be held on August 16-17.

Akinyi, who is the reigning Arnold Classic South Africa overall Wellness 2019 champion, has been undergoing intensive training in Nairobi ahead of the championships.

The event will include the categories of men’s bodybuilding, classic physique, classic bodybuilding, muscular men’s physique, men’s physique, bikini fitness, wellness fitness and overalls.

After months of nothing but hardwork, it’s now time to get down to business for Okinyi and company.

It should not be a difficult task to complete for the muscle-woman, as she has been patient enough.

Meanwhile, Omedo said his federations fully supports government’s plans to criminalise doping.

He added that there should be fairness in all competitions.

“There is no short-cut in body building and any other sports. You must train hard and win clean and not through performance enhancing banned substances,” said the chairman.

“Adak will continue to smoke out all drug cheats. It’s mandatory at amateur level for athletes to undergo doping tests,” he added.

A fortnight ago, Cabinet Secretary in charge of Sports Amina Mohammed said the government will support a proposed bill to criminalise doping.
