SFBF 1st Annual Singapore National Championships 2011

It was a day of excitement and curiosity. Newly-founded IFBB-affiliated Singapore Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (SFBF) finally held their first of many contests to come. And they started it off with a bang. With total cash prize of S$25, 000 and pro cards being given out to overall winners of each category, the SFBF Nationals has become the local contest with the highest payout in recent years (could be of all time too, but I can't confirm that).

I was a volunteer at the Nationals, so I got the chance to take some backstage pics for you guys.

A special thanks to all sponsors of the event, which include Dynaforce, Nutrifirst, Optimum Nutrition, Tano Capital, PAA, Crossfit Fire City, Cherry Bombs Attitude Gear, Physique Athletes Association (PAA), By Brazil Sports and Stephen James Luxury Organics.

The line-up for the men's categories were great but the ones who really shined during the contest were the ladies. Never before has Singapore seen such a fantastic display of lean, well-sculpted, sexy and feminine physiques. Sorry for the poor quality of some photos here. I wasn't able to get a good seat. As for the fantastic black and white shots, credits and appreciation goes to Shirly Hamra.

After a break, we were rewarded with a special guest posing routine by former Ms Olympia, Juliette Bergman! She may be retired from competing, but she's still rock solid!

Figure competitor, Melissa Wee, had HUGE support from the crowd. Looks like someone has quite a fan base. :)

Alex Javier won the Men's Bodybuilding Under-75kg category.

Dex Ng won the Men's Bodybuilding Above-75kg category.

Makoto Goto being a gracious winner and shaking hands with his competitors after winning the Men's Classic Open Bodybuilding category.

Rowena Marcaida won the Women's Bodybuilding Open category.

Nur Farina MJ Ismail bested the longest line up of the day to win the Women's Figure Open category.

Yulia Shumakova-Catron proved that she has the most beach-worthy body by winning the Women's Bikini Fitness category.

Before the event concludes, both winners of the men's bodybuilding categories pose to winner the overall title.

And the overall winner is.... Alex Javier!!

And just before we leave, gotta have a photo with a good friend, Melissa Weeeee (Kiat).


And there goes Mel with her awesome fans!
