Those who can’t teach …
Those who do it better than anybody else, run the show!
Thus is the case with Clinton Beach, a detective in the Major Crimes Division for a large Northern Virginian Police Department. An accomplished and highly decorated 20-year professional bodybuilder with dozens of major competitions to his credit, Beach will serve as Sports Coordinator for the bodybuilding competition of next summer’s World Police & Fire Games, essentially running the show for the competition which will take place on Saturday, June 27 at George Mason University.
In addition to his professional responsibilities, Beach will officially join the Fairfax 2015 competition team two months prior to the Games, charged with the sole responsibility of promoting, managing and administering the bodybuilding portion of the competition. But as he will quickly tell you – just like you can’t wait until the last minute when you’re a bodybuilder – his efforts on behalf of the Games are already well underway.
“I’ve been working closely with the Fairfax 2015 team for months already, building the foundation and establishing the framework for what we all know will be a fascinating part of next summer’s Games,” he said. The competition will feature men’s and women’s divisions for ages 18-29, 30-39, 40-49 and 50-plus, with additional divisions for height and “toning.”
According to Beach, 2015 will be the first World Police & Fire Games for the 42-year-old but he’s not even certain if he will have the time to participate. “I’ll have a better idea when I get a little closer to the Games. Regardless, I’m very much looking forward to working with the dozens of police officers and firefighters who will make this journey to the Washington, D.C. suburbs.” For Beach, that effort will be a true labor of love. “With great passion, I honor all military, police, firefighters, and civil service members who protect and serve,” he said. “I thank you all for keeping this world intact. Your dedicated service does not go unnoticed!”
