Sitthi Charoenrith from Bangkok takes home gold once again. He took the first spot at the 15th Asian Games 2006 in the 80 kilogram class of the Men's Bodybuilding event. The finals for 80kg and higher were held at Al-Dana Banquet Hall in Doha today.
With this win Sitthi Charoenrith scores his 4th major international bodybuilding title. He won the title of Bodybuilding World Champion in the Light-Middleweight class (80 kilogram) in the Czech Republic earlier this year. That was a prolongation of the World Champion title which he initially won in Shanghai, China in 2005. After his gold medal at the 2005 South East Asian Games in Manila, Philippines, he was awarded two million Baht (around US$ 50,000), half coming from the Thai government and half from Thai Bodybuilding Association president Pakpong Kriengsak.
