2020 Man Ghana set for 7th November


The Executive Council (EC) of the Ghana Bodybuilding and Fitness Association (GBFA) have set 7th November 2020 as the date for the association’s main showpiece of the year Man Ghana.

The event which has been dubbed “Peaceful Contest” will be used to select athletes for the national bodybuilding team, Black Muscles.

The event is aimed at spreading the message of a violent free election ahead of the upcoming elections on 7th December as GBFA is advising muscular individuals to desist from using their body for violence and bullying. It’s as a result of this, they thought it wise to get the athletes busy as they focus on their preparation rather.

The GBFA is therefore urging every muscular individual out there to start working on their body to get in shape to be able to participate in this year’s Man Ghana and get the chance to be selected into the national team and represent the country at all international contests in 2021.


The federation also stated that any athlete who fails to compete in this year’s Man Ghana event will not qualify to be part of the national team.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in the cancellation of lots of events in 2020, the GBFA presume that the 2021 International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness (IFBB) events calendar will be packed with events. As a result, the association is looking forward to selecting the best athletes the country can boast of to represent the country come 2021. The GBFA is therefore encouraging all athletes nationwide to participate in this year’s event.
