The Mr Afghanistan competition is one of the main attraction in Afghanistan, although it is a strict Muslim country.
The 10th Mr Afghanistan Championship, held from May 31 to June 3, attracted men from around the country eager to win the coveted title.
Bodybuilding is one of the country's most popular sports - even permitted during the Taliban regime.
During the contest, scantily-clad Bodybuilders fight it out to lift the title of Mr Afghanistan.The competition is run by the Afghanistan Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation (AFBBF), which was founded in the 1950s.
Although we aren't sure why the body builders were made to look black, they still look buff all the same.
