Reigning Ms Zimbabwe Regina Jonga added another silverware to her collection when she came sixth in the female physique while fitness trainer Precious Mujuru finished fourth in the fitness and bikini category at the Arnold Classic Africa here this weekend. The Arnold Classic was graced by celebrated American bodybuilder, actor and politician Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Jonga, a domestic worker in South Africa, was making her debut in an international competition. “Half a loaf is better than nothing but I wish I had adequate resources,” she said.
“The reason I lost points was because I couldn’t challenge some of the competitors who had everything at their disposal.” Mujuru said she was thrilled by her performance. “I must thank God for taking me this far,” she said. “I was surprised to make it and I have just learnt my lessons.” Zimbabwe had more than 15 athletes taking part in the showcase.
