Michelle Lin poses during her first shoot. A new shoot just wrapped up from the Emerald Cup in Seattle.
The Emerald Cup is unfolding in Seattle and we’re pleased to pass along news that local girl Michelle Lin is in the books as the first photoshoot of the weekend. This is the second shoot with the athletic, exceedingly adorable 5-foot-1 national level figure girl and former competitive swimmer and gymnast.
Although Michelle didn’t compete in this year’s Cup, she continues to train hard and looks like she may indeed be working towards an eventual crossover to women’s physique. She loves the posing involved in the division and talked about a possible switch when I interviewed her for the blog last summer. It certainly will be exciting to see what the 24-year-old stunner looks like today with another year of hitting the heavy weights under her belt.
Stay tuned for more news on coming shoots, contest results and more as the action continues throughout this weekend in the Emerald City.

Back in the Groove—Allison Taylor returns to the figure scene later this year after a successful off season of gains.
One of our favorite models on the site, the beautiful figure competitor Allison Taylor of Southern California, is currently measuring her progress after a productive off season before making any contest plans. Also, the personal trainer will be in Newport Beach this weekend co-hosting a Beach Bikini Bootcamp.
Last year, the 27-year-old finished eighth in the figure B class at the Amateur Grand Prix in L.A. and 12th at the USAs in Las Vegas. Good results to be sure, but the former standout collegiate track athlete and soccer player knows she’s capable of much more. After doing several shows, she took some time off to focus on building up her already impressive physique to prepare for 2014. The package she brings to the stage this year should be very exciting to see.
“I finally was able to take a true off season and make some great gains,” she shared with me during a break this week. “I’m slowly coming down and will do a show based on when my body is ready. The discipline of wanting to jump into things so quickly has been the hardest part. I was doing show after show and not really able to make any great muscle gains, so this year that has changed. So far I’ve been about a week and a half into coming down and I feel great. Hoping the changes, especially my back and shoulders, will get noticed.”
Meanwhile, Allison will be co-hosting the Beach Bikini Bootcamp this Sunday morning in the O.C. Those in the area looking to have fun, workout and get healthy tips from one of the best young competitors in the sport can learn more by visiting the event page on Facebook.
