Bodybuilder, Regina Jonga says she quit her job as a maid in South Africa and returned to Zimbabwe to focus on her sport.

“I am based in Zimbabwe now and I have taken bodybuilding full-time. I was working as a domestic worker and I stopped in December when I decided to come home and be with my family. My family is helping in looking after me since I am looking for a job. I hope I will get something soon because I can’t keep on relying on my family,” she said.

“My target now is to become a pro and compete overseas. I am going to compete in bodybuilding until I reach my goals. I hope to get sponsorship soon as you know that bodybuilding is so expensive with the diet and supplements especially at this time when I am not working.”

Last week she was back in South Africa where she bagged two titles at the provincial stage of the National Amateur Body Builders Association (Nabba) Championships in Gauteng.
 “I’m feeling very happy to have won the Nabba provincials last weekend because the competition there was very tight. On the 29th of this month it’s Nabba nationals and I am hoping to do well. If I win, then I will go to compete in California in the US in November, which is a wonderful opportunity for me,” Jonga told The Sports Hub.

Jonga has already begun preparations for the Nabba national finals pencilled for September 28 and 29, which will act as a qualifier for WFF world championships to be held in California on November 3 and 4.
