So, that thing about having done my last bodybuilding competition for the season ?
“That’s me done for the season now – no more competitions planned….”
Turns out that’s not the case.
I’ll be putting on the tan and sparkly suit one more time this year… in America!
This is a blog post I never thought I’d be writing! I’m excited to share the news with you: I have been selected to join the UK team going over to the INBF and WNBF Worlds in Boston (Massachusetts, not Boston Spa hee hee) to compete on 9th November.
This is “dream come true” territory, folks…
I placed 3rd at the UKDFBA open championships last weekend (the winner of my class got her WNBF Pro card that day) but the organiser of that show, and the guy who selects the UK team for the WNBF Worlds, called me and said he would like to take me as the team’s amateur female bodybuilding representative.
Competing overseas, and for a WNBF Pro card, has been my dream and my ultimate goal in this sport.
So I accepted with thanks immediately!
I then walked around the gym car park (I’d been about to start training when I got the call) with my hands on the top of my head, in disbelief. I then went to train, and laugh/cried between sets. I then went back out to my car… to see that I’d left the keys in the ignition and the doors unlocked. I’d been a bit distracted as I parked up… !
So, I’ll be competing in Worcester, MA, in the INBF Worlds (the amateur part of the WNBF) on Saturday 9th November as the team’s only amateur female bodybuilder (no pressure… haha….) What’s at stake? The winner of my class takes the amateur World title and the offer of a WNBF Pro card.
Stay tuned…. for now I’d like to thank Lee Kemp and all at the UKDFBA for this amazing opportunity.
