Sneak Peek: Figure Girl Akane Nigro-Ismeal

It’s my pleasure to welcome to the Studio the stunning Akane Nigro-Ismeal — a gorgeous 5-foot-1, 25-year-old figure girl from Northern California — whom dazzled us throughout a pre-contest shoot last weekend at the Junior Nationals. The raven-haired Akane later dazzled the judges, finishing 3rd in a competitive “A” class that featured over twenty girls.

Akane owes her striking, exotic good-looks to a seductive share of Japanese and Italian, while her compact physique evokes Thai figure pro Huong Arcinas — especially in the area of calves. Indeed, following several top-three finishes in just over a year of competing, Akane looks poised to claim a pro card of her own in the near future.

She looked so cute and classy in Chicago — outfitted in a royal blue sports bra with athletic black shorts and white sneakers with an aqua stripe — that you might have guessed it was a glossy cover girl shoot for a fitness magazine. We did plenty of toe raises and some stair climbing to highlight Akane’s outstanding calves — she’s a former soccer and softball player — finishing with a dramatic measuring of her mighty gastrocnemius muscle!

Good luck to Akane as she preps for her next show, the NPC USA’s on July 25th on the campus of the Runnin’ Rebels of UNLV. This rising star of the figure stage is definitely someone to keep an eye on — and she’s coming soon to the Studio!
