(2010 NPC USAs-Her night to shine and join the elite)
Mandy has competed in figure since 2005, so she's been through the changes of figure, from the hard look being rewarded to the soft look being rewarded, to who the heck knows what's being rewarded. LOL. But one thing I have noticed from Mandy is she always seemed to stay consistent as well as adapt. With how things seem to change in figure almost yearly, it's easy for people to go elsewhere or quit competing altogether. Not Mandy, though. She stuck with it, competing in no less than four shows for the past three years, which is a testament to her commitment to becoming a pro. I mean, if you take a look at her past competition photos, it's no secret why she was a FitGems Award nominee last year, and could be one again this year! This past weekend, it all paid off. Her dream of BECOMING an IFBB Pro has now come to an end, and her new journey as an IFBB Figure Pro has officially begun! For those wondering, no, I have no clue when Mandy will be making her pro debut.
FitGems Nation is planning on doing an interview with Mandy in the near future, so be on the lookout for that. We at FitGems Nation would like to congratulate you on your success in the NPC and finally achieving your dream of becoming an IFBB Figure Pro, and may you have much success in the IFBB! :)
(An indescribable feeling when realizing you're now a pro in your profession. Congrats Mandy!!!)
