Greetings from Vegas
Winning the Open Figure and Muscle Model in the 2010 WSNO/FAME World Championships here in Las Vegas, USA has been amazing.
WOW! It is like a fairytale land here with all the castle looking casinos. It is quite an experience being here for a competition. Being my first international show, it is hard to be in such an exciting place and still be in comp preparation mode.
I can’t say I have seen much of Vegas yet. I did do some shopping on the first day, but I needed to remember why I came here. Staying off my feet leading up to the show was important to keep the fluid out of my legs. I spent the majority of the time in my room, cooking food, eating and tanning up for the show. It was quite a challenge to not dirty the linen, bathroom tiles and towels with tanning lotion.
The day before the show I sat in the hotel room with the lovely Lindy Olsen with our feet up and carbing up every couple of hours.
The whole competition was awesome. I realise that I love being up on that stage and reinforcing the hard work and dedication I have put into this sport all year. Doing the Muscle Model division allowed me to let my hair done a bit and envelop a character that doesn’t come naturally. I got to wriggle my hips, flick my hair and still got to show my muscular attributes. It was so much fun.
It was a very long day and we were all exhausted at the end. Although it finished at 10pm, we did still manage to get to the Cheesecake Factory for a decent feed and I indulged in an Oreo Cheesecake. It was delicious.
Spending quality time with the lovely Lindy and awesome Amanda has been priceless. I feel I have made lifetime friends in these girls. They are genuine, honest and a whole lot of fun. I have never laughed so much in my life.
A special thank you to Dallas Olsen too. I haven’t come across many men like him. Dallas would drive us all around Vegas to all the shopping malls, sit for hours while we ladies shop without uttering a complaint. Coupled with a flu that he has developed, he is one amazing man.
I now intend to relax, venture around Vegas and eat some delicious food. I will be doing a photo shoot with Dallas Olsen over at Gold’s Gym and another with Marc Thyssen at Red Rock. I will post the photos up soon.
Bye for now and I will be back later for further updates.
