NABBA/WFF Nationals, 2 October 2010
Kaiapoi High School, Christchurch

One show format starting at noon.  $30

1 Oct: So far 54 athletes have registered at show inluding Jnr Steve Orton who's weighing in over 100kg!  Tarren McCall will be doing Senior Figure, Tom Wojick Masters Athletic and Phil Kuklinski, Max Stott in Masters Physique.
29 Sept update: Only 3 days until the inaugural NABBA/WFF Nationals and although we're not sure of the definite numbers competing at this show, we can only speculate that we'll see athletes who competed at the NABBA/WFF Blenheim show will turn out for the nationals.
Plus the recent well conditioned athletes who competed at the IFBB South Island just last weekend might also find the opportunity to show their bodies again so soon an incentive to compete.   

We know that pocket dynamo Nuria Novoa has been working on another dynamic routine for her fitness class. We may see her have some competition from an equally explosive athlete in this show but again we can't confirm that either. Tom Wojcik who won the Masters Athletic class earlier this year will more than likely head to the Nationals.

We hear there are good entries from Invercargill and Wellington which will include the mighty physique of Max Stott. There is possibly other contingents from Auckland heading down to the show. I know, hard to find athletes to tell you if they're competing or not!  But one athlete who's ok with us telling his mission is Aucklander Nelly Vaoesa.

27 year old Nelly last competed about 4 years ago and at the time showed amazing mass and symmetry for a young guy. Now with 4 years hard training under his belt and an intensive 5 months with Master Blaster Garry Jones as his trainer, Nelly has been pushed hard and consequently has made big improvements to his legs and back. Nelly, an Evolutionsystems sponsored athlete, says he can't wait to see the look on people's faces when he finally steps on stage at the Nationals. And we can't wait to see your brand new body Nelly!

12 Sept update: Despite the severe damange to some of Kaiapoi's infrastructure, organisers wish to advise all competitors & supporters that the NABBA/WFF National Championships will definately be going ahead & that there has been no damage sustained to their venue, the Kaiapoi High School.         

They've had increasing interest in this show following on from the success of our Top of the South Champs  & Club Physical's show in Auckland with a number of competitors coming down from both of these events.

The show will be qualifying & partially funding up to 4 athletes into either the NABBA Universe on 30th Oct or the WFF Worlds on the 23rd Oct up to NZ$2000 each providing they meet international standards of competition.

Because this is the inaugural National Champs there will be no requirement to qualify from other shows. NABBA/WFF will accept athletes who have competed under other Federations in NZ or Australia providing they join NABBA/WFF NZ, complete standard entry requirements & abide by their rules & regulations. These are still currently based on those pertaining to NABBA/WFF Australia see
