52-year-old body builder cop from Mangaluru making India proud

Present CCB ACP was honoured with a number of awards like President’s Police Medal for outstanding service on Republic Day this year, the Chief Minister’s Gold Medal in 2009 and the Udupi district Rajyotsava Award in 2008 etc.

Mangaluru: Then the teenager Valentine wanted to be fit so started working out while he was in PUC. The routine developed into a passion and the man continued to pursue and wins accolades on a global level.

Meet Valentine D’Souza, City Crime Branch ACP in Mangaluru and also a bodybuilder who has represented India at multiple international forums. Most recently, he won the ‘best poser’ title in the 50+ age group at the International Natural Bodybuilding Association’s (INBA) competition held in Las Vegas from November 9 to 12.

“I’m really happy about this. All my hard work and training has paid off,” the elated 52-year-old told media. INBA is a US-based body accredited by Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) and tries to promote natural bodybuilding.

Younger Valentine D’Souza avidly participated in bodybuilding competitions at the state as well as national levels. He proudly recounts some of his achievements – winning the fold at Mysore University for three consecutive years from 1987-89, Open State Gold Medal, again for three years straight from 1988-90 and the All India level-Junior Mr. India title in 1991, to name a few.

But once Valentine joined the police force in 1994 after training at the Mysuru Police Academy, he stopped pursuing body-building; although he did continue with his usual workouts to remain healthy.

He served in various places including Udupi, Kota, Honnavara, Chikmaglur etc. It was in 2013 – after a gap of two decades – that Valentine took up bodybuilding again after being appointed as city crime branch (CCB) inspector in Mangaluru.

To be healthy Valentine does jogging, cross-training as well as weights and when he is preparing for competitions, a strict diet adds to the even more intensive workout regime. Avoiding junks with odd hours and hectic schedules is not a big deal for him. “It’s simple. I have been doing this for years so it’s just in my habit to not eat unhealthy food.”

What also inspires Valentine is when he goes to competitions, he sees people even older than him sporting healthy bodies and working hard to maintain their health and physique. “I want to continue doing this. I need to be healthy. I wear the uniform, so it is my duty to be fit to do my work,” he maintains.

He was honoured with a number of awards like President’s Police Medal for outstanding service on Republic Day this year, the Chief Minister’s Gold Medal in 2009 and the Udupi district Rajyotsava Award in 2008 etc.
