Avefa muscles her way to South Pacific title
With solid biceps and a well toned core, Misa Avefa looked hard to beat in the women’s division of the South Pacific Bodybuilding Championships on September 25th in Port Moresby.
Though only three women competed in the division, Avefa looked strong from the start with a good all round figure and muscle structure that impressed the judges.
She also secured the gold medal in her division while the silver went to the Cook Islands and bronze medal went to fellow Papua New Guinean, Elizabeth John.
Meanwhile, it was a tight competition in the men’s division which saw tight competition between PNG, Tahiti, New Caledonia, Tahiti and Cook Islands.
In the end, 85kg gold medalist, Stephane Matke of Tahiti took out the overall prize and crowned as Mr. South Pacific.
PNG gold medalist, Iso Finch (70kg) and Aaron Dai (75kg) put in a strong performance in the overall category but Matke was impressive enough to win the title for the second time in a row.
Matke equals former Mr. South Pacific, Donald Kaiwi’s (PNG) record of winning the title for two consecutive times in a row.
Donald who has come out of retirement recently, and 2011 Pacific Games gold medalist, Jack Viyufa did not compete in the event and will surely provide a strong competition when they meet again in 2015 for the Pacific Games in Port Moresby.
