Coleraine body builder Lesley Ann Armstrong has finally hit the big time.

The 31-year-old was in Las Vegas at the weekend competing in the prestigious World Beauty Fitness and Fashion Show.

And after months of intense training, the qualified physiotherapist, who has been body building for the past five years, gained her pro card after taking second place in Amateur Figure class.

And the former Miss World, couldn’t be happier. Speaking to Times Sport on Sunday, Lesley Ann, who celebrated her birthday whilst in the US said: “ I am really thrilled. I got second place in Amateur Figure class and my Pro card, this means that from now on I am competing at professional shows. I am now a professional representing the WBFF.”

The WBFF are the fastest growing fitness and beauty organization in the industry.

Lesley Ann, who had previously taken part in the NABBA championships, has admitted that she has been eating, sleeping and living for the American championships.

Lesley Ann’s strict regime - training twice a day six days a week, surviving on a strict diet of chicken, porridge and vegetables and not drinking any alcohol has certainly paid off!
