T&T bodybuilder Dexter Simon will be launching a fitness website on Friday, September 14, just over six weeks before he competes at the IFBB Elite Pro World Championships in Rome.

The championships are set for November 1 and 2.

The 49-year-old Simon, who will be the only Masters' age athlete (35 years and over) in the competition recently returned from Jamaica where he and his family enjoyed a short vacation before he got back to work on his website and his preparations for the championships.

“I had a much-needed break after six pro shows for the year and several guest performances. I took the family for some fun in the sun on the beautiful island of Jamaica. It was my first visit to the island, which was the kids first choice destination at the Sunscape Resort,” he said.

“This time to rest was strategically placed just before the launch of my new website dextersimon.com and my eight- week prep for the first IFBB Elite Pro World Championship.”

Dexter revealed that the website will feature some very new and interesting services that include online training for people who are unable to get to a gym and want to get it done at home as well as 5K to marathon training for novice to advanced athletes.

It will also have tips on competitive preparation for bodybuilding among other things.

“My secrets and those of the pros and one-on-one talks on how I have done 38 shows in 38 months and stay lean all year round. Diet plans to lose weight without even training for those who just can’t make the time but want to lose some extra pounds, and training plans to get toned or gain muscle and get that six pack and great beach look you have always wanted,” he said.

He said there will also be motivational speeches and video clips on how he stays disciplined and focussed as well as how to deal with cravings and maintaining focus throughout your diet. “And, most important, the holistic approach to becoming a champion with mental strength and control.”

  • Trinidad and Tobago discus thrower Quincy Wilson sues athletic association Trinidad and Tobago discus thrower Quincy Wilson sues athletic association

    Trinidad and Tobago athlete Quincy Wilson is suing the National Association of Athletic Associations over what he claims is the association’s negligence which caused him to become injured thereby losing the ability to earn, to train and prepare for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

    The suit was filed in Trinidad and Tobago's High Court of Justice on Monday. Dr Emir Crowne, Matthew Gayle, Crys­tal Paul, and Ja­son Jones are representing the disaffected athlete.

    The 28-year-old Wilson is an eight-time national champion and holds the national record of 59.65m. He has also represented Trinidad and Tobago at the CARIFTA Games and in 2011 won a bronze medal at the NACAC U23 Championships in Mexico.

    In late July, on or about the 28th, Wilson was competing at the national championships. He stepped into the ring and executed two throws. Two other throws were fouls. However, on his fifth throw, he slipped and fell.

    According to court documents obtained by Sportsmax.TV, Wilson suffered shock and severe pain, a meniscal tear in his right knee, pain in both knees. He subsequently experienced psychological damage, mental anguish and a loss of quality of life.

    Wilson claims his subsequent inability to train has affected his mood and personality, and he is unable to carry out his household chores and his responsibilities as a husband and father.

    He blames the NAAA in that they or their employees painted or covered the discus circle with the wrong substance making it slippery. He also claims that the NAAA failed to ensure that the discus circle was at the requisite standard of safety and that they failed to inspect the circle prior to his accident.

    Wilson also claims, among other things, that the NAAA failed to use a certified IAAF official to inspect the circle.

    As a result, he wants the NAAA to pay for or facilitate his rehabilitation, cover his lost wages. He is also seeking compensation for the loss of opportunity to compete professionally and possibly attracting sponsors.
