There are times when we here in St Vincent and the Grenadines take people for granted and fail to recognise their concerted efforts at making this country proud by taking its name to ever higher levels of international recognition. Bodybuilding in St Vincent and the Grenadines has had a very long history. Like so many other sporting disciplines it has had its ebb and flows but has nonetheless remained in the forefront of Vincentian sport. Over the past few years there has been some measure of conflict within the fraternity and this has led to the splintering of the bodybuilding movement in St Vincent and the Grenadines. This has not however daunted the many persons who continue to devote themselves to the sport even though through different levels of representation.
Kurt McLean of Stubbs has been this country’s foremost bodybuilder over a number of years. His move to living in the United States of America has not in any way meant movement away from the sport that brought him to national recognition.
