Some have started calling President Hugo Chavez's young opponent in the 7 October election...Henry Capriles Radonski...'El Flaquito'/the skinny one...because he has lost so much weight in his grueling campaign throughout the nation.
'Look at a photo of me 5 months ago and now. The deterioration in the face...it's remarkable,' he admits.
Capriles has visited 160 locales since 01 July.
Some polling shows Chavez with a low double digit lead...but others reveal a much closer contest...as Chavez's health kept him off the road for months...until only recently.
