WINNIPEG – Winnipegger Brian Duaqui joined Team Canada by special invitation to compete in the upcoming IFBB World Fitness Championships in Montreal, October 17 to 20.

A fulltime fitness instructor at a Goodlife Fitness club in Winnipeg, Duaqui will compete in the Physique Short Class, a division in which he took first place as a novice in the 2012 Manitoba Amateur Body Building Association (MABBA) championships.

Duaqui hopes his performance in Montreal will earn him a pro card, which will allow him to compete internationally in other top-level competitions such as the Arnold Classic Sports Festival and the Toronto Pro SuperShow. Currently he is sponsored by Gorilla Jack Supplements.

The IFBB, or International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness, is the governing body of the sport of bodybuilding and fitness. Brothers Joe and Ben Weider founded the IFBB in Montreal in 1946. Its headquarters are now located in Madrid, Spain.
