Junior bodybuilder takes two overall wins and pro card

JUNIOR bodybuilder Kaya Yusuf stole the show at the PCA Universe weekend.

Yusuf won his class in the Universe qualifier on Saturday, also taking the overall. He returned 24 hours later to secure the PCA Universe title in the junior bodybuilding class. He was also awarded a PCA pro card.

Yusuf then won the PCA Universe overall title – with a gold sword – before going on to place second in the pro show.

He said: "Today we won the JR Mr Universe and the Mr Universe overall bodybuilding title. We then made history becoming the first ever junior to become a PCA pro. This entered me into my first pro bodybuilding show, where I placed second out of six world-class athletes.

"That booked my ticket and free flights to represent Team GB with the PCA team at the World Championships in Amsterdam. I am overwhelmed and so grateful for all the support.

"I’m sure it’ll all sink in tomorrow. Thank you so much to @jase_345 [coach, below left] and all his guidance. Without him none of this would’ve been possible."

Danny Baldwinson was another who qualified on Saturday by winning his class – bodybuilding medium – then went on to secure the PCA Universe title the following day, also being awarded a PCA pro card.

Catriona Scott won the bikini short class and with it a PCA pro card and her coach Dan Welburn said on social media: "First season on stage this year ever for her and she’s smoked every show to date."

Elsewhere, Frankie Fernandes secured the overall figure title and was also awarded her PCA pro card. So was Christie Hands, who won the overall bikini title. Tony Yem took his Pro card when winning the overall Men's Physique title.

Outside of the PCA, Zoe Miller continued her remarkable season by winning the overall title at the UKBFF Scottish Championships.

This story will update once more results are made available.
