Musclemania® Paris Junior & Overall Champion Deelan Duriez (R) was a complete surprise to everyone at the show. Seen here being congratulated by MM Pro Simeon Panda (L), the 5’9″, 185 lbs., 20 year old student competed in the show last year, but did not crack the Top 5. “I went home and started planning to return as new bodybuilder,” Deelan says. “I changed my diet, trained twice a day, concentrated on my symmetry, a lot of things were different this year.” Although Deeland technically qualifies as a MM Pro, he’s opted to return to the open ranks next year and will compete at MM Universe in June. “I may have won the Paris show, but I am just 20 and just don’t think I am ready for the Pros,” he explains.
