With less than four months after the Para-Olympic games in England, a group of Liberians under the name Sports and Entertainment hosted a weight-lifting competition in honor of Liberia's Para-Olympic representative Bobby "the Big" Shaffa.

"The Big" who is currently ranked third (3rd) in Africa and seventh (7th) in the World thanked Liberians and the Winners Inc. family for their presence and contribution to the event. The event which brought together body building houses in the city was sponsored by Liberia's No.1 sports betting company Winners Inc.

The open air Sports Commission on Broad Street hosted the competition that saw Liberians at the edge of their seats as the competition progressed. At the opening event, the Marketing Manager of Winners Inc, Mr. Randall Kaybee presented to the organizers a cash donation of 75,000 Liberian dollars. He stressed that the company is not only identifying with the weight lifting sport, but is also giving job opportunities to body-builders, some of which are currently under the employ of the company. He also has job opportunities for any six (6) participants that will be interested in working with the company as watchmen. This is one of the numerous contributions the company continues to do in communities in Monrovia and its suburbs.
