"I like competition." With those words, Force says it all. As a boy he enjoyed the combative rewards of wrestling and boxing. At 13 he turned his physical skills to martial arts. It was clear to all who watched Force growing that this ball of muscle was headed for stardom.

At 22, he was pronounced a South Pacific Bodybuilding Champion. Force works out on a daily basis and his regime includes weight training, aerobics and stretching.

Asked what his greatest asset was in competition, Force answered easily: "Mental toughness... and I train like a demon".

In the arena, standing at an intimidating 185 cms and flexing all his 106 kgs of toned muscle, he is indeed a Force to be reckoned with. But on the golf course or with his camera - that's a different story.

Tragedy struck during Atlaspheres in the third Quarter Final of Series 1, when Force sustained a cruciate ligament injury. He was not physically fit for competition when series 2 was recorded.
