The competition included categories for children up to the age of 17 years, beginners, youth, novice, men’s physique, modeling women’s figure for veterans, and bikini fitness. Winners of the Mr. Vigor and Fuerza qualified for Mr. Mexico Youth and Veterans National Tournament to be held on May 16th and 18th in Mexico City.

Gaba participated in the bikini fitness category, whereby she modeled evening wear, sportswear and bikini. “The competition was tough but I placed second. You have no idea how proud I am. The hard work I put into this, most won’t understand just what it is to be a part of this lifestyle. It isn’t an easy challenge but it is one that I am willing to take,” said an excited Gaba. “I owe a big thank you to my parents for sticking by me throughout this process. I would also like to thank my entire San Pedro Community for supporting me and motivating me to keep going.”
