Pavitt places second in Mr. Alaska meet

Posted: Thursday, April 20, 2000

The third time was, unfortunately, not a charm for local body-builder Corey Pavitt.

Pavitt, 41, finished second for the third straight year at the Mr. Alaska competition in Anchorage March 25. And, in a vote of confidence that he's getting closer to his goal of winning the title, Pavitt was also named `Most Improved Body-Builder' for the third straight year.

``I got a lot of positive feedback on my conditioning,'' said Pavitt, who competed in the open division of the light heavyweight class. ``I'll get there sooner or later.''

Pavitt competed in Mr. Alaska in 1980, then again in 1982, then got out of competitive body-building for 13 years. He returned to the Mr. Alaska competition in 1995, and he's been steadily improving since.

``I'm nothing if not persistent,'' Pavitt said. ``It's actually really rewarding because now I'm basically the man to beat next year.''

Pavitt said his goal is to compete in national master's competitions. But to do that, a Mr. Alaska title must come first.

``I very much want to win the overall title,'' Pavitt said. ``But I'm improving and that's the most important thing.''

Pavitt noted that many people helped out with training, choreographing and producing music for his routine, and giving him advice.

``I felt like I was really representing Juneau this time,'' Pavitt said.
