Ohio native Amanda Hatfield competes in her first Fitness International next weekend.

The opening of the 2013 Arnold Classic and Expo is just days away and that means it’s a good time to catch up with one of the new stars, Amanda Hatfield, set to make her Fitness International debut. After she won her pro card last year, Mandy twice hit the pro stage down in Florida, beginning with the Ft. Lauderdale Cup and finishing with the IFBB Pro World Championships in Miami. She took seventh in both events.

The Arnold takes place in Columbus, Ohio and it will be Mandy’s first pro show in her home state. Some notable competitors will be missing from the event this year, including Tina Durkin and Jodi Boam, limiting the field to ten women and making the show seemingly more wide open than it’s been in a while.

We’re hoping to get more thoughts from Amanda within the next few days before the show, but for now she reports that contest prep has been going well which is certainly good news. Today is even more special with a massive 11-clip update from her latest photo shoot along Lake Erie.
