KUWAIT – A Kuwait-based Filipino bodybuilder won gold at the most prestigious bodybuilding competition in the world held recently in Madrid, Spain.

Ariel Guong won the gold in the 75 kilos below category of the 2013 Arnold Classic. The event is headed by former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenneger.

Guong could still not believe that he beat other international bodybuilders.

Getting to the top wasn’t easy as Guong and his colleagues had to undergo a very difficult training in preparation for the competition.

Guong promised to train even harder to give further honor to the Philippines through the field of bodybuilding.
