Bunbury bodybuilder Mae-Ling Mildwaters has gone from strength to strength in 2018.
Mildwaters took on competitors from across Western Australia during the 2018 ICN State Titles in Perth on October 6.
Her dedication and intense training schedule paid off, with Mildwaters taking out the Figure Novice, Figure International Open, Figure Open, and Overall Winner divisions.
The bodybuilder then went on to claim the Figure International Open and Overall World Champion divisions at the World Championships in Queensland on October 27.
She also placed second in the World Championships’ Figure Open category.
Last year, she won the Fitness category at the ICN State Titles.
Mildwaters said she was surprised to have earned so many awards.
“It gave me a bit more competition, taking on people from all over the world,” she said.
“It doesn’t seem real. I work my hardest and give 150 per cent, I just try to prove that I can do it.
“It’s a bonus that I actually did win.”
Mildwaters began going to the gym in 2012, training vigorously before making the decision to enter her first competition.
In 2017 and 2018, she was trained by Dungeon Powerlifting owner Brad Humble, pushing her to achieve the desired result.
Next year, she will be training even harder in preparation for the Arnold Classic Australia in 2020.
When she’s not striving to improve her bodybuilding skills, Mildwaters is helping others as a mobile personal trainer.
