After a brief pause from competition to give birth to her second child (now a 17-month-old bouncing baby boy), striking figure girl Inna Ableman made a solid return to the stage this year, placing runner-up in her class at the Emerald Cup. It was the first show since 2011 for the European native originally out of Moscow, Russia and now residing in Lynnwood, Washington. The 32-year-old mom of two (her other child is a boy, 13) is currently seeking her U.S. citizenship and hopes to secure it in time to compete at her national-level debut.

Inna began training to compete in 2009 and stepped on stage the following year. Her athletic background includes softball, pickleball (not a typo, pickleball is a real sport—sort of a cross between badminton and tennis), and dancing professionally in Latino Dance for 10 years. As creative as she is athletic, Inna is also a talented and highly regarded designer of competition suits.

Back in 2010, Inna made quite an impact in her initial year competing, winning her class in two shows (the Tanji Johnson Classic and Emerald Cup) and winning both her class and the overall championship in two shows (the Washington Ironman and Oregon Ironman). In 2011, she competed at the Washington State show one month pregnant with her second child and still ended up taking third.

Today, the 5-foot-3, 115-pound mom is delighted with the progress her physique has made—showing great upper body and overall development in these new shots—and the youthful, brunette beauty is on track to pick up where she left off. “I am in the best shape I have ever been,” she said.
