16 Feb Manx Athlete in Mr Britain Competition
It’s always great to see the Isle of Man being represented on an international stage and this year we will have an entry in a prestigious body building competition. Nuno Figueira, a local gym instructor will be taking part in the Mr Britain competition later this year, a challenge which could also give him a shot at participating at the prestigious Mr Universe contest.
Nuno has been living in the Isle of Man for the last 5 years during which time he started training and became a qualified gym instructor. He is originally from Madeira, a Portuguese island slightly larger than the Isle of Man but much more densely populated. He currently works at Body Shack, a fitness centre in Kingswood Grove, Douglas, and you can also find him minding the door at Bordello over the weekend.
The initial event is scheduled for the 17th May which consists of the NABBA (National Amateur Bodybuilder’s Association) qualifier in Southport. If Nuno is successful in this competition he could proceed to the Mr. Britain competition two weeks later on the 30th May and could also potentially qualify for the WFF Mr. Universe.
Nuno can be seen here flanked by Richard and Steven from Body Shack who will be helping Nuno in his efforts by sponsoring his health supplements and personal training.
ManxVoice would like to add our best wishes to that of Nuno’s fans and supporters and wish him the best of luck in his forthcoming competition. We’ll keep you posted with any news we get.
