The Sangguniang Panlungsod (City Council) on its regular session yesterday approved a resolution commending Zamboangueño body builder Mariel Garganera for giving honor to Zamboanga City when he won second place in the recently concluded international body building competition held in Hong Kong last July 15, 2012.
Garganera capped the silver in the professional 85 kg. division of the tournament dubbed “Hong Kong Body Building Fitness 2012 International Body Building Invitation Championship” from the more than 100 participants from other countries who joined in the contest.
The august body unanimously approved the edict and also called on the city government to study the possibility of rewarding the strongman with cash under the reward system of the sports ordinance.
Garganera, 41, resident of Divisoria, disclosed he won several body building competitions to include winning the Mr. Philippines tournament in 2003 and many others.
The Zamboangueño muscle man is now working as a body building coach in one of the fitness gyms in the Middle East.
“Every time I join these kind of tournament I always represents Zamboanga City as my home place. I would like to thank the councilors for passing the resolution commending me for the honor I gave the city,” Garganera said.
