I came first in both the Muscle Model and Fitness Model categories, both for the over 50 age group of course! It was an amazing experience, a draining day with some heavy preparation involved on both training and nutrition fronts over the previous 6 weeks, but well worth it when the results were announced at 10pm.
I’ve decided to ‘retire at the top’ and don’t plan on competing again – I have to say that ‘never’ is a big word, but I can’t see me changing my mind at this point. I’ve had a great few years on stage, made some great friends doing it, and have accumulated a few British Championship and runner-up World trophies. But now I have the double World Championship – with the biggest trophies ever! – I am happy to move on from posing competitions.
I’ll still be involved in fitness – in more and bigger ways than before, in fact – but the trophy cabinet is now full. Many thanks to Angie Weston , Audrey Kaipio and Matt Marsh, plus everyone else I’ve met both backstage and onstage at Miami Pro, all of whom I hope to meet again in the gym someday!
