It will be holding the 12th South-east Asian Championships at the National University of Singapore's University Cultural Centre on June 13. The association is led by Dennis Tew, a 32-year-old gym owner who was formerly the national bodybuilding coach from 2004 to 2007. Established a decade ago, WBPF-SG was formerly known as the Young Men Bodybuilding Association before undergoing a name change in January. National bodybuilder Joan Liew is glad to see the sport spark into life review once again, saying: "At least there are groups making an effort to start something for the sport." Of the other three bodybuilding associations in Singapore - Bodybuilding Singapore, Singapore Bodybuilding Federation (SBBF) and Singapore Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness (SFBF) - both SBBF and SFBF are now dormant.
