bodybuilder kyle bidding for glory

A YOUNG Stranocum man will take his first steps in the highly competitive world of body building when he makes his debut at the Waterfront Hall, Belfast next month.

Kyle Horner will compete in the Junior class for 18 to 23-year-olds and such is the progress he has made in a short time, he is expected to be amongst the winners.

Training under the guidance of Stephen Graham and Andy McBride at Sammy Graham’s gym in Ballymoney, Kyle is currently on a strict dietary regime as well as perfecting the right technique on stage.

The event at the Waterfront is being organised by Stephen Graham who is no stranger to winning titles in the past and Stephen has high hopes of success for his protege.

The event will showcase some of the best bodybuilders in the country and Kyle will not be out of place in the line-up. He will also have the added bonus of being cheered on by 12 members of his family who will accompany him on the trip.

Kyle started body building two and a half years ago and has only been at the Sammy Graham gym for the past eight months when he decided to take up the sport seriously.

His strict adherence to a diet has stood him in good stead and he says he’ll be in the shape of his life for the Waterfront date on August 17.

The 21-year-old said: “I train hard, eat properly and do everything that’s asked of me. I cannot do much more,” he said.
