RENO SHINES IN CANADA

Britain's Reno Banks is celebrating his best result so far as an IFBB Elite Pro.

Classic bodybuilder Reno flew to Montreal for last weekend's $34,000 Elite Pro Canada where he excelled in a class of nine athletes.

He earned $500 for his fourth place finish as well as points towards qualification for the World Championships in Italy in November.

 Reno holds his cheque in Canada.

It's a great achievement by Reno, who relies on his wonderful shape and proportions to slay bigger guys in the classic class, which restricts weight according to height.

“The prize money will come in handy for shopping as I'm flying to New York for family time,” he said.

Rasto Valent and Ade Bishop had previously earned money for top three finishes at IFBB Elite Pro shows this year, but so far nobody from the UK has claimed first place – who will make history?
