England footie star Walcott’s sis wants to be world’s top woman bodybuilder

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

LONDON - British bikini-clad bodybuilder Hollie Walcott once hated the sight of her own figure, but now is keen to reach the top of her sport like her football star brother Theo Walcott.heo, 21, represents England and the Premier League team Arsenal.

On the other hand, Hollie, 26, has just been crowned champion in the American Nationals Amateur Figure competition, in Washington D.C., a title which catapults her into the higher reaches of the sport - and the public arena.

“In my first competition I didn’t even use my surname because I didn’t want the issue of my being Theo’s sister to come up - but I can’t hide my name forever. Theo was shocked when I started bodybuilding but he is very supportive now. I want people to understand that my success in this sport is nothing to do with him,” Fox Sports quoted Hollie, as saying.
“Some people might see it as unusual but I love it and want to reach the same heights in bodybuilding as Theo has in football,” she added.

The mum-of-two is a mesmerising combination of muscular tone and feminine beauty. She competes in the “figure” side of bodybuilding, which requires women to display their muscles in a catwalk-style routine, wearing skimpy, bejewelled bikinis. (ANI)
