Vincentian bodybuilder, Efford Rogers who lives in Canada continues to make himself and his country proud.
Rogers, who left St. Vincent some years ago, continues to make his mark in the sport.
His last competition before migrating to Canada was The WNBF World Championships in New York 2007, where he placed 7th.
In Canada, the very dedicated bodybuilder won the Winston Invitational Championships in 2012, an Ontario Regional Championship, which qualifies him to compete at the Ontario Championships.
Last year, Rogers placed 1st in the middleweight category (177 lbs – 187 lbs) weighing in at 183 lbs at the Ontario Championships, which qualifies him for the Canadian National Bodybuilding Championships.
On Sept. 6, Rogers, aiming for his IFBB professional status, missed it by two positions when he placed 3rd in the Men’s Masters heavyweight, weighting in at 196 lbs.
This position qualifies him to compete next year at the Arnold’s Amateur Championships and the North American Championships.
Rogers will be making another attempt next year to gain his IFBB Professional Status (Pro. Card), where he hopes to be heavier and harder.
Rogers said he feels very happy, but, but noted that placing 1st would have allowed him to gain his IFBB Professional Status.
Nevertheless, he said, is very thankful to God, his colleagues and supporters.
Rogers also competed in the light-heavyweight category.
The bodybuilding fraternity in SVG has expressed best wishes to Rogers in all his future endeavours.
