Body­builder takes out pres­ti­gious ti­tle

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

A LO­CAL body­builder has taken out the ti­tle of Miss Queens­land Masters Fig­ure Cham­pion held on the Gold Coast last week­end.

Owner of Prince of Wales Ho­tel He­len Long­muir has now qual­i­fied for the na­tional cham­pi­onships to be held in Syd­ney on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 13.

The epic sin­gle day event wel­comed six of the best fig­ure mod­els from across the state.

Long­muir said state com­pe­ti­tions were al­ways a chal­lenge with the best ath­letes bat­tling it out on the Aus­tralian stage.

“I thought it was a good event to en­ter be­cause I’m now head­ing into na­tion­als posi- tioned as first in the state,” she said.

“I placed se­cond at the na­tional cham­pi­onships last year and I am hop­ing to re­gain my ti­tle at the event this year.”

Long­muir re­cently com­peted in the North Queens­land Ti­tles held at Jupiter’s Casino in Townsville, tak­ing out first place in Open Fig­ure and se­cond in Fig­ure In­ter­na­tional di­vi­sions.

She cel­e­brated her 60th fig­ure com­pe­ti­tion in five and a half years at the event, which is a great achieve­ment.

Long­muir cur­rently holds 23 fig­ure ti­tles in­clud­ing Olympia World Cham­pion, Asia Pa­cific and Aus­tralian Cham­pion.

HOT CON­TENDER: Whit­sun­day body­builder He­len Long­muir was crowned the Miss Queens­land Masters Fig­ure Cham­pion on the Gold Coast and will now at­tend the na­tional ti­tles in Syd­ney on Oc­to­ber 13.
