By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belizean bodybuilding champion Clayton Greenidge recently received his Elite Pro Card from the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (IFBB) recognizing him as a professional athlete.
“This means he is no longer an amateur athlete & he has become a professional,” said the Belize Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation (BBBF) President, Mirna Paul Greendige. “This earns him the rights to compete in Elite Pro Championships sanctioned by the IFBB around the world. He can be paid if he wins in those competitions whereas as an amateur, he only earns bragging rights.”
Greenidge has won several regional titles in his amateur career including, two gold medals in the Central American Olympic Games in Nicaragua in 2017 and two gold in two bodybuilding categories (up to 80 kg & Masters Bodybuilding) in the recent Central America & Caribbean IFBB Championship in El Salvador in August 2021.
“The highlight of this is that he is the first in Belize to qualify for a professional card from IFBB, the federation with the maximum authority in the sport of bodybuilding with a membership of 196 countries,” said the BBBF president.
“So, it is a big deal for our local Federation since he has achieved the highest recognition in our sport.”
