Strandfontein muscle man, Jeremy Welkom, has qualified for next year’s World Fitness Federation (WFF) Universe championships, in Bangkok, Thailand. Three weeks ago, he finished in second place at the WWF championships in Mexico, to book a spot in Bangkok. Originally from Makhanda and living in Cape Town since 2013, Welkom started bodybuilding five years ago. Although he’s won numerous titles in various competitions over the years, Welkom says it’s always a mission to raise funds to allow him to follow his passion. Selling boerewors and burgers is helpful but not enough to raise the necessary funds, he says. If you can help, call 062 073 0783.
