Barbados – The 2016 Darcy Beckles Invitational Classic is off to a stronger start with sponsorship from Rock Hard Cement.
The cement company will sponsor the grand prize for the bodybuilder segment of the competition worth $4,500.00 Operations Manager Darren Matthews said that the support of the event falls right in line with the focus of Rock Hard Cement. “Our brand prioritizes strength, quality and consistency, which are some of the main attributes of the athletes competing in the Darcy Beckles Classic,” said Matthews “so our support here is just a good synergy.”
Matthews noted that Rock Hard is a major sponsor of the Tridents, Pride of Barbados CPL cricket team and also sponsored the inaugural Trinidad Ultimate Ninja Warrior fitness event last month. “We are a regional company and so our support for Caribbean athletes just follows as one of our passions. We are delighted to be aligned with regional sports and athletes of quality.”
Roger Boyce, Chairman of Iron Promotions, the company that organizes the classic welcomed the new sponsor. “For us at Iron Promotions we are very, very happy with Rock Hard coming on board this year. The Darcy Beckles Invitational Classic is a cash incentive event and every year we bring in guest artistes to highlight both our regional Pro as well as expose the public to bodybuilders from outside the region. Support such as this will go a long way to see us through this year.”
The event, which will be held on Saturday, October 15, will have among its guest posers Cedric McMillan Winner of the 2016 Levrone Pro Classic and the 2015 Golden State Pro, Fred Smalls, winner of the 2015 Dallas Europa and local physique Pro Ramon Dodson.
