Afuhaʻamango to guest pose at Samoa body building competition

Tonga’s golden boy Manase Afuhaʻamango is set to ignite the Gov H. Rex Lee Auditorium stage this weekend when he makes a guest appearance at the Sau Ia Bodybuilding Club  in Pagopago.

The Samoan competition was set up last year by Peter Reid III and Sala McMoore to promote the Samoan youth body builders.

Afuhaʻamango won a gold medal in the -100 kg weight category at the Pacific Games 2015.

He will be in Samoa together with Masa Onodera, the president of the New Zealand based Tonga Bodybuilding Association (TBBA) of which he is a member.

Onodera will be one of the judges during the competition.

He told Kaniva News the TBBA has about 25 members in which three won gold medals during the South Pacific Games 2015.

The Association organised fund raising earlier this month as part of their preparation to travel to Tonga to participate in the upcoming Mr Tonga competition.

This week’s event will be the first body building competition to be organised by the Sau Ia Bodybuilding Club .

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.
