ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany bodybuilder, who recently won Mr. Georgia, is already preparing for his next competition.

Pete Williams beat out more than 150 competitors for the Georgia State Championship and was crowned Mr. Georgia on July 6th.

The 26 year-old won first place in the heavyweight division and then won overall.  Williams says he was confident that all of his hard work and preparation was going to pay off...and it did.

"Going into it I thought it was going to be a little bit more competitive, but when I actually saw the score card after the show was over I won with almost a perfect score.  So it wasn't even close," said Williams.

Williams, who began bodybuilding in 2009, says he's taking his career one step at a time.  After a competition in Jacksonville next month, he'll take some time off to prepare for Mr. USA, which is next summer in Las Vegas.
