Vancouver Island bodybuilder wins two golds at 60 in his competitive debut

Comox Valley man his first bodybuilding competition, Vancouver Naturals

Ken Dickinson, a 60-year-old Comox Valley bodybuilder, was chasing the 50-plus grand-masters and 40-plus masters titles at a recent competition.

He won both divisions at the Vancouver Naturals bodybuilding event, May 7 in North Vancouver. He also won a silver medal in masters men’s physique, and placed sixth out of eight in the open class.

Dickinson has been working out for 38 years. It was his first bodybuilding competition.

“It’s been on my bucket list for years,” he said.

The event was a World Natural Bodybuilding Federation (WNBF) Canada pro qualifier. However, there were not enough competitors in Dickinson’s class to earn a pro card, so he’s working on next year.
