First held in 1991 and arguably bodybuilding's leading worldwide competition, Muscelmania 13th annual meet was help November 19-20, 2004, at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel, next door to Disneyland. Televised around the globe by ESPN International, DSF Germany, Sky Sport Britain and Star Sport Asia - the event is the premier show-down for natural bodybuilders.
Nyoman Arnawa - Simply the Best
Despite the increasingly competitive field at each successive year that Musclemania is held, Bali's very own native-son Nyoman Arnawa has won top honor in the Professional Bodybuilder's category at this year's event. In winning the competition, Nyoman's has further secured Bali's reputation as a center for bodybuilding excellence, with Bali champions now having claimed the top spot in 3 out of 13 years of Musclemania's history. Prior to Arnawa's 2004 victory, Bali's bodybuilding superstar Ade Rai won top honors in 1995 and 2000.
In the 2004 intensely-fought competition, Nyoman Arnawa secured the top honors for the day beating a group comprised of the world's top 9 bodybuilders for, in the words of the officials, displaying his "flawless symmetry and muscle mass."
Nyoman, who celebrates his 29th birthday on December 13, 2004, nearly missed this year's competition, his appearance only made possible through last-minute contributions by Kuta-area businesses who underwrote the cost of his appearance. Fanatically dedicated to his sport, Arnawa exercises from early morning till night when preparing to compete, sustaining his championship physique on a low carbohydrate diet comprised of 3.5 kilograms of meat each day.
