Sunshine State Star Impressive in Pro Debut

Figure Pro Kamla Macko

First off, sorry about the lengthy time between posts. Sometimes outside distractions snowball and make it difficult to write. Life happens. Hope to get things worked out eventually so updates can be more regular again. Anyway, still here for all of you loyal readers and fans. Thanks for your patience…

Now onto the one of the latest stars to grace the roster here on the Studio, belonging to figure girl Kamla Macko, who turned pro just a couple months ago at the USAs. In this interview for Muscular Development after winning class E in Las Vegas, the 27-year-old, whose had some ups and downs during her journey, thanked her trainer and expressed appreciation with the attention and acclaim of being a new role model in the sport.

Kamla’s debut shoot took place at the USAs. Here’s a couple more shots from the front and back of Kamla’s upperbody from the site of her pro card winning turn. The 5-foot-8, 130-pound personal trainer, boot camp instructor and MMA trainer didn’t waste any time making her IFBB debut at the Valenti Gold Cup Figure Championships in Sarasota, Florida early this month.

Kamla, who is from Brandon, Florida near Tampa—and a graduate of Florida International University with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science—finished an impressive second in her pro debut behind Figure Olympia favorite Erin Stern. With such dazzling early returns, Kamla could be a sleeper surprise on the pro figure stage in 2013.

Update: Correction, Kamla’s shoot took place at the Tampa Pro (August 10), not the USAs. Tampa was her pro debut and she placed fifth, then second at Valenti Cup. Still impressive with consecutive top fives to start her pro career.
