He competed in the Men’s Physique Open Class A and dominated, winning a gold medal. He moved on to the final round where winners from each Men’s Physique [A - F] class competed, with the top 3 earning coveted IFBB Pro League Pro Cards.

In the Men’s Physique overall, Goddard placed second, winning him IFBB Pro status. At 25 years old, Goddard is one of the youngest Bermudian bodybuilders to earn this designation.

Goddard said, “I have trained hard for this moment, but it still feels surreal. It is time for me to make my mark on this sport as a professional, I have a lot to offer, so stay tuned for more from me.”

He trains under Coach Muhsin Nasir of BEAST Gym, a sponsor of his Road to Pro, and Goddard said, “I am so grateful to my Coach for his guidance, BEAST Gym, and my other sponsors including the Bermuda Bodybuilding Federation, Bermuda Healthcare Services, Minister Tinee Furbert, and Candi Cre8ions. I’d also like to thank my family and friends for their support, I could not have gotten here without you.”

    Great job young man. First time I saw you compete here , the physique jumped out as pro quality. Many strive for that pro card few accomplish it and at 25 you got many years left in the game. Stay knowledgeable and stay healthy.
