Mareeba’s Annette Price took home not one, but four fi rst place positions at the recent Australian National Bodybuilding competition.

A LOCAL Mareeba woman has broken into the bodybuilding ranks after taking out four first places at the recent Australian National Bodybuilding (ANB) competition held in Townsville. 

Annette Price participated in the ANB held in Townsville at the end of May, taking out four first place finishes. 

Competing in the figure international short category, Annette entered as a novice as this was her first time competing and not only did she win both the figure and international short category, but also overall figure from all the categories. 

This was not all however as she also was voted the best poser out of the figure category, quite an achievement as she only just started to compete in bodybuilding. 

“I was always into fitness and a few years ago I did a powerlifting comp and came second for my weight grade, after that I decided I wanted to do something a little more challenging,” Annette said.

“I feel incredible, I treated this as a stepping stone to really build, to get my foot in the door and really experience what competing is like.

“The added bonus just happened to be that I won my categories.” 

Annette trained under the watchful eye of coach and mentor Joey Clark, another Mareeba bodybuilder who made headlines some years ago contesting Mr Universe. 

Now Annette will be looking towards next year for the next competition, giving her time to properly prepare.
