Diamond Cup – Slovakia
Soon the 20th of May – the Diamond Cup kicked off, three weeks after the first major bodybuilding show of the year was held, the Spring Classic! The show ran between the 20th-22nd and was held in Zilina. The categories for this particular show included: Bodybuilding, Classic Bodybuilding, Men’s Physique, Fitness, Bodyfitness and Bikini Fitness. Galway City Gym took it international! We had Dawid Geler and Monika Kotecka travelling to this competition, with no relenting as competition season was in full flow. The competition welcomed a very certain Mr. Olympia, Phil Heath as guest poser – a fantastic occasion! Monika arrived for her third show in three weeks – and not her last – and although she didn’t place, she looked incredible and did the whole of Galway City Gym proud! Here’s a snap of her just a few hours before she stepped on stage – as you can see from this photo the standard was super-high if the package Monika brought didn’t get top 6! So next up, Dawid entered the u85kg Bodybuilding class – and amazingly took home 2nd place. Here is a stage shot on the day – he looked fantastic! So another competition down and another superb showing by the Galway City Gym athletes. Once again – we were amazingly well represented and enjoyed every moment of this journey.
