Bengaluru water tanker driver G Balakrishna wins Mr Asia title & dedicated his win to Indian Army soldiers

Once you have decided to do anything in your life, keep this in mind. Nothing Is Impossible. India’s G Balakrishna has won the coveted Mr Asia 2016 title at the 5th Phil-Asia International Bodybuilding and Fitness Championships that took place earlier this month in the Philippines. The 25-year-old, who hails from Bengaluru, dedicated his win to Indian Army soldiers.

The crown caps a long and arduous journey of nearly a decade for Mr. Balakrishna, who lost his father, the family’s breadwinner, when he was a boy. “I am proud of my achievement and hope to repeat it more often with some financial support,” a beaming Mr. Balakrishna, an ardent fan of Schwarzenegger, told The Hindu. “I owe it to my mother, Parvathamma, and brother Rajesh who have been my pillars of support,” he said.

He won Mr. Universe Under-24 junior contest in 2013 in Germany and Mr. Universe title in the same category at the world championship in Athens in 2014. “I am maintaining my position with a rich daily diet that includes 750 g of chicken, 25 eggs, 300 g of rice, 200 g of vegetables along with fish for extra protein and fruits.“Despite winning the championship, my worry will always be of funds. With no government support, I still struggle to participate in bodybuilding championships outside the country.”
