Austin Williams of Ripon has won second place at the UK Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation British Championships held at the Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham last weekend. Austin was pleased with the step up as he has won third place 2013 and 2014 in the Classic Bodybuilding Class.
Austin has had a very busy and successful year so far, competing in the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic in Columbus, Ohio, USA back in March where he placed 6th and then went on to win 1st place at the Bodypower Expo at the NEC, Birmingham in May. He also won 1st place at the Cumbrian Classic at Workington, Cumbria in June and 2nd place at the English Grand Prix, High Wycombe in July. All these wins qualified him to enter the Arnold Classic Bodybuilding Contest held in Madrid on 26th September where he was placed in the top 15. They also qualified him to enter the British Championships which is such a large contest it is held over two days and a credit to win the silver medal.
Austin will be competing next at the Amateur Olympia to be held in the Echo Arena, Liverpool on 1st November where he will compete against the worlds best.
