Downie seek­ing top 5 spot in Olympia

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Front Page - By MIKE KING


Downie, who will thun­der on stage with about 150 pounds of mus­cle, said she had not added size but was rather main­tain­ing con­di­tion.

“Just get­ting my con­di­tion right, I don’t need to be big­ger. I should be be­tween 145 and 150 pounds of lean mus­cle,” she added.

Downie said she has been work­ing out at two gyms.

“When I lost in­spi­ra­tion, I went back home to Val­ley Fit­ness, but I was at Flaw­less Per­for­mance Con­cepts for stair­mas­ter car­dio,” she added.

This is the third pro con­test of the sea­son for Downie. On June 30, she cap­tured the San Jose Pro in Cal­i­for­nia and qual­i­fied for the Olympia, and in July she had to set­tle for 13th place in the Chicago Pro.

Downie has had ten top ten finishes in the pro ranks, in­clud­ing three last sea­son. She was tenth at the Arnold Clas­sic in Colum­bus, Ohio, in March and fin­ished the year with sec­ond and third places on the Amer­i­can cir­cuit in Novem­ber.


AN­TOINETTE DOWNIE: “Over the week­end, my nutritionist looked at me and he is pleased that I am on track. I am ready.”
