Muscling in on ti­tles

Sunday Tasmanian - - NEWS - JAMES KITTO

A TAS­MA­NIAN body­build­ing cou­ple aren’t tak­ing any­thing lightly as they gear up to strike a pose at next week’s na­tional body­build­ing com­pe­ti­tion in Mel­bourne.

Se­bastien Duay, 34, and girl­friend Chelsea Wil­liams, 26, have ded­i­cated the past six months to get their bod­ies in peak con­di­tion as they aim to be crowned the coun­try’s best body­builders.

The cou­ple will fly to Mel­bourne next week to com­pete along­side Aus­tralia’s best body­builders at the iCom­pete Nat­u­ral Cham­pi­onships where they will be judged on mus­cu­lar de­vel­op­ment, sym­me­try, and stage pres­ence.

The pair, who ded­i­cate their toned physiques to train­ing coaches Stephanie and Ewan McKay of Plan­etMax, said com­pet­ing along­side one an­other will make next week’s event ex­tra spe­cial.

“It’s re­ally amaz­ing … it’ll be in­cred­i­ble to com­pete … with Chelsea there,” Mr Duay said.

Ms Wil­liams, who fin­ished fifth at the ICN event last year, said she felt bet­ter pre­pared this time around.

“I know more about what to ex­pect … and it feels a lit­tle less daunt­ing,” she said.

The pair is hop­ing to do well enough at next week­end’s event to earn a place at the world ti­tles to be held at the Gold Coast later this month.
