my first bodybuilding comp was when I was 31 years old. I competed in
the N.A.B.B.A.'s Miss Scotland, Miss Britain, Miss Universe and other
local competitions, as well as competitions run by W.A.B.B.A and the
In all my competitions I have always placed top 3. I was
asked to compete in the first ever World's Strongest Woman
competition in which I was reluctant to do, but I thought it was a challenge
that I would regret, if I refused.
After only having 8 weeks to change my way of training
and get used to the event stuff, I placed 4th in the WSW '01 competiton
in Africa. This gave me the push to carry on that type of training for
the following year's '02 competiton, in which I placed 2nd. The year
after that, '03, I was injured out on the second to last event. This
was a big set back for me, as it was my Achilles tendon that was damaged.
I'm on the mend know and back at trainning hoping to compete
again next year, if possible in bodybuilding competitions, but I have
a lot of gym work to do, due to the rest-time I had to take off.
