Crime Scene Examiner by day and bodybuilder by night, Senior Constable 1/C Kirsty Ray has taken out the overall female Australian / Asia Pacific Champion for 2013 after competing in the World Natural Bodybuilding Federation Asia Pacific Championships in Adelaide last month.
Kirsty has also placed 1st in the Fit Body Category and 2nd in the USA Figure category and was personally invited to the World Championships by the President of the federation, however she’s decided to further her training for another year in the hope of representing Australia and taking out the number one spot in the ‘Work in America’ late next year.
Kirsty says she’s very pleased with her achievement and it makes the effort she put in all worth it.
“We go out there to do our best, all that hard work you do through the year, it’s just an amazing feeling, a relief to get recognised for the late nights and early mornings and no life.
“This is the third year I’ve been competing. It’s a great lifestyle and a great sport, but it’s a demanding lifestyle juggling the workouts, on call and work commitments. The win is something I’ve worked three years for and I can’t wait to go and eat Haigh’s chocolate,” she said.
Kirsty is most appreciative and thankful for the support from her family and friends, and from her great sponsors Wicked NRG and NDA Supplements Australia ... and hopes that these results may also help motivate the rest of us to get a little bit healthier before the Christmas season starts
