Bodybuilders Flex Muscles To Become Mr Malaysia
Dozens of buff bodybuilders vied for the title of Mr Malaysia on Sunday in a racy two-day spectacle in the Muslim-majority nation.
A whole bunch of followers, including women in headscarves, cheered and snapped pictures because the participants exhibited their six-packs, thigh and shoulder muscles.
The male-only occasion was organised by the Kuala Lumpur bodybuilding federation and held in Puchong – about 15 miles south of the capital.
Farhana Nazri, 22, who was celebrating after her boyfriend’s brother won, mentioned: ‘I have watched a few of the competitions. While the costume conflicts with Islam, I believe we must always see it as a sport.’

Malaysia is mostly considered a average Muslim country, but fears have grown lately that it’s changing into increasingly conservative with emphasis on strict Islamic codes of conduct.
The vast majority of Sunday’s 70 finalists have been ethnic Malay Muslims.
With sizzling-pink shorts and hair spiked right into a flame-pink mohican, Mohamad Hakimi said he was not involved about baring – nearly – all for the tournament.

‘As a Muslim, I consider bodybuilding as a sport. I do not suppose by exposing my pores and skin contradicts with my religion,’ the 40-yr-outdated gym instructor said.
