Grand-Prix des trois frontières

Powerfood's J-M.B Team

Hello my dear fitfam,

Yesterday I participated in the 'Grand-Prix des trois frontières' in Eupen (Belgium). There weren't as many athletes as in Rheinbach, but the physiques of the other athletes were still outstanding. I don't want to keep you in suspense...*drum rolls*

I placed 3rd and therefor qualified for the Mr. & Ms. Universe in Hamburg at the end of the month...isn't that awesome?
I am so happy and I still can't believe that I made it. It's my first season and I already qualified for the Miss Universe in Hamburg. My debut as a bikini-shape competitor couldn't have been any better.

Yesterday,our entire team made some great victories, my boyfriend also placed 3rd in his category and Yannick S. (our champion) placed 1st in the Body-class 3 , 2nd in Semi-Pro and he was nominated the Overall winner. Powerfood's J-M.B for the wi!

All in one, the backstage-atmosphere wasn't so tingly and tense as in Rheinbach because the backstage-section was divided.. You could stay right behind the stage, or place yourself in one of the two changing rooms, where you had your own table and seat with a mirror and a wash-basin. As Ken and I already arrived with our coach early in the morning, we had the freedom to chose whatever spot we wanted. 

I was with sharing the place with 3 other women so the atmosphere was very calm.  I got to know Martina L., a very nice person with whom I had a great talk. She already participated at the ' Miss FIBO Power beauty' in April, and in Rheinbach in May and last week. I am happy that I got to know her. But one of the best moments, expect my victory, was when that one little girl was smiling at me with a glint in her eyes and saying in german '' Hello, I just want to tell you that you looked very pretty on stage'' . That was a real 'awwwwww' moment. I was really flattered by her words, she was so cute. Every time we crossed our ways (she helped her mother out in the refreshment area) she was smiling at me. At the end of the competition she topped her smiles when she asked me if she could give me a hug. I mean... hello... give this little girl an oscar for her cuteness hihi. 

After all, a big THANK YOU goes to my beloved fitfam who supported and motivated me on Facebook, Instagram or via private messages. I also want to thank my family and my boyfriend's family  for having been there, it was a great pleasure and so much fun between the breaks. I also take a call to Vincent Croutzen and his friendly wife Sabrina who supported us backstage. They helped us  with the finish-tan, the warm-up and they comforted us before stepping on stage. 

But the sincerest thanks goes to my coach, Jean-Marie Bermer, who prepared, motivated, supported and believed in me. I feel blessed that I am part of this team, I know that it's roughly the same speech as last week's, but I am just being honest.

I can't wait until the 28th of November, when we leave for the Mr.&Ms. Universe-weekend. I am sure we are going to have a great time and a lot of fun together. 

You'll find further pictures on my Facebook-page again. Enjoy your week my loves. xX
