Bodybuilding a new sport at Sin City Shootout

Richard from the Bodybuilding Guild explais why they joined the growing list of sports on offer at the coming Sin City Shootout in Las Vegas:

In the past there were several LGBT bodybuilding competitions in non-Gay Games years, but this is no longer the case. It's a real pity because it helps build interest in the Gay Games. So we're very happy to have been invited by the hosts of the Sin City Shootout to organize a bodybuilding competition there.

It's the first year, and we haven't reached capacity in terms of registrations, so last-minute entries are welcome. Those participating are very motivated: we have two competitors traveling over 9000 miles to participate!

We will accept late entries up to check-in on Friday, January 13, 2012 at the Planet Hollywood
Hotel. So far the organization behind this event is doing a good job, and we're very pleased to be part of such a big sporting event in such an exciting place.
