Portishead Bodybuilder places at UKDFBA Open UK Championships
Saturday 27th September 2014 – Leamington Spa, England
Portishead bodybuilder Ian Scammell, a member of the Fitness Hub Portishead, was in action on the 27th of September as he competed in the United Kingdom Drug Free bodybuilding Association championships (UKDFBA). The UKDFBA was founded in 2011 to provide UK bodybuilders with a much needed affiliate to the WNBF, which is recognised as the number one natural/drug free bodybuilding sanctioning body in the World. Since inception, the annual UK Open Championship has gone from strength to strength and this was its fourth year of competition.
Considering the quality of competition, which included a current BNBF (British Natural Bodybuilding Federation) British champion and previous title holders, Ian was placed 3rd in the over 40’s category, a very good result for the Hub star but Ian was slightly disappointed that he didn’t get 2nd place as he showed a great level of conditioned muscle. That said, Ian is determined to come back stronger than ever and knows what he has to do to improve, stating that “during the next year I think I need to work on shoulder width and upper pectorial thickness to be a contender for the title. Another year of hard training and dedication ahead and we will see want happens. In the meantime I would like to thank The Fitness Hub for all their support.”
