Bush kicks football aside but stays buff

Bodybuilding fans converged at the Arts and Recreation Centre in Camana Bay for the Fitness Extravaganza on Saturday.

It was organized by siblings Jason and Jenique Smith, and with over 200 attending for the first of what they intend to be an annual affair, it was an encouraging start.

A percentage of the proceeds was donated to the Special Olympics Cayman Islands. Contestants came mainly from World Gym, Kings Sports Centre and Universal Fitness, and sponsors included Ai Rentals and X107.1FM radio.

Jose Luis Bush – better known as a footballer with Elite Sports Club and Scholars International – won the Mr. Physique Open, with Olmer Mendez Navas as the runner-up. Bush retired from football a couple of years ago because of injuries but has certainly kept in shape since.

The Ms. Bikini title went to Olga Kovtun, and for all the months of dietary sacrifice and tough gym sessions she tucked into her first bars of chocolate soon after.
