A WHITSUNDAY bodybuilder has won the Grand Masters Figure Title at the Asia Pacific Championships on the Gold Coast.
Owner of the Prince of Wales Hotel Helen Longmuir is the reigning Asia Pacific Champion and has won the title for two years in a row.
"I actually felt a lot of pressure this year as I won the competition last year, so it was definitely a lot more difficult this time round," the 49-year-old said.
The Asia Pacific Championships is an international competition with entrants coming from Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Korea and Japan.
Australian Natural Bodybuilding Association (ANB) promoters Steve and Antonietta Jones hosted a spectacular event proving Australia still has what it takes to keep up with the rest of the world.
The epic two-day event welcomed more than 350 competitors including some of the finest physique, figure and fitness models in Australasia.
Mrs Longmuir holds 21 figure titles including Olympia World Champion, Asia Pacific and Australian Champion.
She said she was looking forward to having the next three months off before competing in state and national events in September.
