Great new all the way from Kuwait, Mark Joyce British super heavy weight won his class and overall at NPC Kuwait 2022 pro qualifier on Friday 18th of March.
Long story short
Mark has been known for placing high and nearly getting his pro card at NPC events for the past few years now, with my personal favorite battle against Jan Turek at NPC European in 2020. Judges couldn’t decided back then between “freakish” look of Mark or slightly more aesthetic of Jan eventually when with Turek and rest is history.
Joyce has been competing since 2013 with Nabba British title along the way in 2018, last few weeks of prep spent in Kuwait under watchful eye of this coach Ahmad Alnaqi and trained in famous Oxygen along some of the world best including Brandon Curry.
At prejudging Mark was initially in the center of the second call out , in the last call brought in as a third with two other best super heavies and again moved to the center stage at the very end. At that point big smile on his face knowing his on to something.
Finals were just formality although stream I watch was terrible I think Mark got even tighter, won his class followed by overall and was handed his Pro Card by non other that Oxygen resident Nathan De Asha. Oxygen was official sponsor of this shows.
