We heard there were some interesting decisions made at the South Pacific Champs in New Caledonia.  We are still waiting for more pics of the different classes so we can see the decision for ourselves.

Although haven't spoken to Eleanor Stewart who competed in the u55kg class at the comp, a fellow athlete said she didn't even place! Elle presented her ripped physique and was the most heavily muscled in the lineup of about 5 girls, but the top 3 were in more beach body conditioned we were told. 

In the meantime we did get a few pics of the super close contest between Stan Tautalanoa and Tony Ligaliga in which Stan won.  Thanks to Carl Adam Jnr for the pics.

Overall Comparison    

10 Aug: This Saturday the sexy samoans Eleanor Stewart, Tony Ligaliga, Alex Brown, Puli and perhaps a few others we don't know about are off to compete at the Samoan Bodybuilding Champs this Saturday 13 August in Apia Samoa.

I caught up with Eleanor, Tony and Alex to snap a sneak peek of how they're looking ahead of the show.  Eleanor is on target.  She's now not competing but will be guest poser for the show and will save herself for the South Pacific Champs in Tahiti in 2 weeks time. 

Elle, Tony and Lisa
When we saw Tony, he's looking hot as usual weighing in at 80.5kg and his muscles are looking very dense with much detail in his back.  Alex is looking good too and is competing in the u90kg class.  Check out the pics for yourself!

  6 July: With only 5 weeks until the Samoan Bodybuilding Champs, our resident sexy samoans are shaping up nicely. I caught up with Eleanor Stewart last weekend and she's looking nice and lean, and weighing just under 55kg.  Currently she's doing 2 hour walks every morning at 5am to speed up her fat loss.

Here are some pics of Elle and also of Chris Gooch who Elle's training to compete at the NABBA BOP and possibly the NABBA/WFF Pan Pac Champs.  As you can see he's looking pretty good too with a great pair of legs.

Lucky me I got to see Tony Ligaliga stripped down yesterday revealing a very contest ready physique and his legs are amazing.  He only has a couple kgs to lose and should be on target for a ripped physique.  Hopefully he'll let me take some pics to show you soon.

I'm also hearing a rumour that
Stan Tautalanoa and Mateo Vaihu will also be competing at the South Pacific Champs in Tahiti.  Stan or Mateo will probably line up against Tony in the u80kg class and what a sight that will be!

6 Feb:  With the incentive of representing Samoa at the South Pacific Games in New Caledonia (on 28 Aug) this year,  many NZ based Samoans are coming out of the woodworks to first qualify at the Samoan Bodybuilding Champs on 13 August in Apia. 

Tony Ligaliga, u80kg champ at the 2010 South Pacific Champs, said there's going to be alot of athletes competing from the Environment Gym. Some athletes include Eleanor Stewart, Deb Teiho, Alex Brown, Puli, Naki and ofcourse Tony.

Elle will be getting back into her bikini this year.

Tony will be aiming to take out the Samoan Nationals and then hopefully take back his Overall South Pacific Title which was won last year by Yip Tauhiro.  However, Tony's training is currently hindered by his recovery from shoulder surgery and won't be able to train properly for another 6 weeks. Then watch out!

If any other Samoans in NZ would like to compete at the Samoan Nationals or South Pacific Games, please contact us.
