Nassau, Bahamas  - The BBFF kicked of its 2011 season on June 4th with the Novice championship, at the Performance Arts Theater. 1 week to fine tune their physiques, those novice athletes saw competition once again in Freeport June 11th with the Northern Bahamas Championships.

On Saturday July 2nd the biggest local competition for body building and fitness athletes took place at the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort, marking the return of body building to a well air condition, proper changing rooms, and comfort for both athletes and spectators alike by hosting it at this revenue.

As the competition got started and the night progressed, there were some obvious winners, and in other categories the judges had their hands full to determine, who will walk away with the win.

In the fitness short class, both ladies representing Grand Bahama, displayed condition, symmetry, muscle tone, and grace, as Dominique Wilkinson once again edged out Miranda for the win. Dominique would later go up against Ms Ceejay Hilton winner in the women’s tall class for the overall fitness woman title.

Dawn Charlton the only competitor in the Fitness routine division, displayed, strength, power moves, flexibility, choreography and gymnastic, to capture that division.

Naomi Fatal proved that her win in her first bikini competition was no fluke in Freeport. She took on Amy Sands winner in the New Providence bikini competition and came on out on top once they completed their model walk and turns for the judges. 

Tammy Stubbs overall winner in the Northern Bahamas championship dominated the woman’s lightweight division once again, which also saw Lorraine LeFluer defeating Charmine McNabb in the woman’s heavyweight division.
