Mr. Rigo Vellos:  “Actually at no point I was nervous, first of all.   It’s not nervous.   It’s just a matter of fact of…you are starting to question yourself till you get comfortable in the crowd with the contestants.   I think that just fade off”.

 “I really worked hard.   My coach, Clayton Grinage, I mean, we trained so hard.   I think people in the gym saw how hard we worked.   It came with the nutrition.   I haven’t had a soda in maybe three years or a drink of alcoholic beverages in three years.   I eat very clean and up until I would say about eight weeks before I was training two times a day, was really hard intense training.   There was times when I literally fell down and I said, “Coach, please stop!” -and he’s like, “No! Champions are made, not born”, and I was like “You know, that’s right”.   So then I got back up and I kept going.   So, honestly, it’s really rewarding because I put in a lot of work tonight”

The winners of the competition participate in regional and international competitions.
