I'm very excited to announce that I've confirmed my first 2 shows for 2018! It will be my 3rd year competing - wow, time flies!
Competing in the UK has been wonderful and I'm forever grateful for my MP Elite Pro title from Miami Pro (I'll be attending or competing in April's show) and placing in the top 4 with UKBFF this year.
You've probably seen the big news about IFBB/NPC federations split, and although it is sad, there are now a few international opportunities that the athletes have never had before! Arnold Amateur in the USA in March for example! Before you had to qualify via your country of origin to compete in prestigious Arnold's events. Now, you're welcome to enter on your own at a few selected Arnold's!
No one knows what will happen with the IFBB/NPC in the future, as both federations are growing rapidly on their own. However, I've decided to jump into this exciting opportunity and entered to compete in Ohio on 1st-3rd March in Arnold Amateur!
The week after, I'll be competing in my dear London - IFBB Pro Qualifier 'Royal London Pro'. It will be held in Stratford, just 20mins away from my apartment. Talk about convince!
I have a few other IFBB Pro qualifiers in mind for 2018, but the above 2 shows are all confirmed. Bikini prep has started this week and going great so far!
During this December 2017, I'm doing daily uploads on my YouTube channel, where you can catch glimpses of this new bikini prep and more > https://www.youtube.com/c/anastasiaova
Very excited for 2018! If you're attending any of the shows, please drop me a message on Instagram, would be lovely to see some familiar faces on stage or in the audience :)
