Two-time gold medalist Ivan Byekwaso is contemplating on switching nationality to either USA or Australia after failing to get funds to enable him defend the crowns that he won last year.
The World bodybuilding champion needs $13000 to defend his world titles in Budapest, Hungary but hasn’t gotten any luck yet after parting ways with Jack Pemba who used to finance his career.
I started receiving requests of changing nationality since I won silver in Slovakia in 2014 but I rejected them. I have been loyal enough and if I don’t get the facilitation, I will have no other option because time is running.” Said the 32-year-old body builder regarding this matter.
Ivan Byekwaso last year became the first Ugandan body builder to win the INBA Natural Body building World Cup in San Diego as well as the Natural Olympia body building contest.
