Guyana once hosted a successful CAC back in 2004 and the federation head was firm that Guyana can repeat such a momentous feat; which will equally boost Tourism in this contemporary time.Regarding the overall support of the bodybuilding guild, the Assistant Director of Sport pledged full support on behalf of the Government. She specified that once transparency and good bookkeeping are upheld, the government will continue to invest in bodybuilding as well as other sports in Guyana. (Clifton Ross)last_img read more
