BODYBUILDER Blessing “Banks” Sithole is shattered to be missing out on the Mexico Classics after failing to secure funding for the trip.
The two-day competition starts on 7 November.
Sithole, who competes in the men’s physique category, was hoping to carry his fine form to Mexico after impressing on the both the local and regional fronts.
However, as is often the case with local bodybuilders funding challenges chocked that dream.
“It’s unfortunate that I will not be going to Mexico but there is nothing I can do,” said Sithole.
“I trained hard for this competition and its really disheartening that I am not going. Our appeal as athletes to the corporate world is to come and lend a helping hand.”
