Laura Bailey Hits ‘09 Running
There wasn’t much down time last year for Laura Bailey, who shined under the figure spotlights in a whopping eleven shows during 2008, incredibly taking home top honors in all but four. The amateur competitor currently from Bakersfield, California polished off the frenetic season with a flourish by winning her last two shows — the INBA Team USA and the INBA Natural Figure Olympia.
Laura chronicles her busy and successful stage journey on her BodySpace profile page, which also includes great photos and a video clip of the ambitious 31-year-old — who remarkably juggles the sport along with PhD studies at Prairie View A&M University.
We’re proud to have this sharp and engaging talent as part of our fleet of rising stars. Here’s a highlight from Laura’s shoot with the Studio last spring.
Not surprisingly, the former track athlete doesn’t plan on slowing down any time soon. Laura will kick off the competitive season at the Arnold Amateur in March; she’ll also be attending the Fit Expo in Los Angeles coming up this weekend.
