IFBB South Pacific and Oceania

IFBB Vice President South Pacific Oceania Paul Graham is committed to the development of our sport and the IFBB in the region.

Aided by some dedicated officials such as Mark Stewart, Joe Daniel, Talai Nau and Masa Ondera, Andre Barrows, Ross Graham and Carole Graham, Paul continues to create an environment for the South Pacific Islands working together for the best possible outcome for the athletes.
