Tu‘ipulotu wins Mr Tonga bodybuilding title

Tongan- Immigrant New Zealand resident Penisimani (Benjamin) Tu’ipulotu won the professional men’s open bodybuilding contest Friday 5 at Queen Salote Memorial Hall in Nuku’alofa.

He was crowned with the competition’s title, Mr Tonga.

Professional bodybuilding is becoming more popular in the kingdom and in last year it was announced that Telesia Fau’onuku was the first Tongan woman to participate in the 20th South Pacific Bodybuliding Championships which was held in Tonga.

Tongan contestants topped the South Pacific Bodybuilding competition’s medal tally.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
