Mindi Limps Into Olympia

Injury-plagued Mindi O'Brien will try to beat the odds at the Fitness Olympia in Vegas.

Luck Be A Lady: Injury-plagued Mindi O'Brien will try to beat the odds at the Fitness Olympia in Vegas.

Even if Mindi O’Brien doesn’t win the Fitness Olympia next weekend, just being on stage — and getting off it — will be a triumph for the Canadian superstar.

As reported earlier this week on Bodysport.com, Mindi has been hampered by a partial tear to one of her Achilles tendons. The injury occurred during training for the Arnold Fitness International, where she went on to place ninth.

Despite the painful setback, Mindi competed in Atlantic City last weekend and qualified for the Big Show with an astonishing second-place finish. The accomplishment demonstrated a level of skill, toughness and determination that makes the pride of St. Catharines, Ontario a consummate pro.

However, considering she won’t be one-hundred percent and risks aggravating the injury — which one doctor said would keep her away from the sport for at least a year — it also makes Mindi a bit of a gambler.

Hopefully, luck will continue to be on her side in Las Vegas.
