Season could be over for double winner but Miller and Johnstone shine at BPA opener

RYAN GOMES won his second successive overall title at the PCA South West on Saturday – but may skip the Universe.

Gomes, once again heavily muscled and bringing a strong super-shredded condition, blitzed the competition by winning the Bodybuilding Short class.

He then stormed to a second successive overall title, after winning the PCA Saxon Classic on April 7.

But Gomes revealed that initial plans to try to make it a hat-trick at the PCA Universe on May 26 could now be shelved.

He said: "I have some things I need to attend to and I've decided they are probably more important. As nice as it would be to do, there is always another year and I'll only go away to improve.

"That's not to say it's a guaranteed no for this year – we shall see – but I am always honest."

Frontdouble.com hopes that whatever issues Gomes needs to attend to are not serious. We hope he is able to return his stellar physique to the stage sooner than later.

The British Physique Alliance kicked off its season on Sunday with the Scottish Grand Prix.

The ladies overall title was won by Zoe Miller (above), who also secured the overall at the IBFA's Granite City show on April 7.

Miller has been quite active this season,placing third in the Ladies Toned Figure class at the PCA Scotland on April 14.

The men's overall title was won by Classic Bodybuilding athlete Alex Johnstone (above). He just missed out on a hat-trick of trophies when being pipped to the Classic Physique title by Mark Finnegan.

Johnstone has also been busy this season, having won the Classic Bodybuilding Tall class at the PCA Scotland.
