Kingsley Poitier definitely deserves an RIP shout out. He was the first bodybuilder from the Bahamas to win the Mr. World Title! He passed away at 82!
“I too can recall many days training at Wong’s Gym in Palmdale where Mr. Poitier mentored me and taught me some of the basic mechanic exercises - form and technique
He inspired me to pursue and become a professional bodybuilder and to push beyond my imagination and my physical strength to grace the world stage. I am grateful to him for my professional accomplishments in this regard.
As I reflect, I would like to say to Mr. Poitier and the BBFF, thank you for believing in me.
