According to him, finances have been very difficult, an action that ha seen most of his colleagues drop out of the Angola trip.

“This is a very expensive sport and individual one as well. Unfortunately, there is no form of sponsorship coming from the government ahead of this competition. Our mother association, the Ghana Bodybuilding and Fitness Association (GBFA) is doing its best to make sure we get to the top and that motivates us.

“However I feel more can be done so as to get some sponsors to come on board to help the Association to get more PRO Cards for the nation.

Joe Bataba is one of Ghana’s fast-rising bodybuilders at the moment. He has several awards and titles under his belt. He won Ghana a gold medal in May this year, winning the overall prize in the Men’s Bodybuilding Up to 90kg in the Arnold Classic competition held in South Africa.
