YOUNG entrepreneur Priyanka Singh had not always dreamt about going on stage to compete in a bodybuilding competition.

After watching a bodybuilding show where there was not much female participation, the 21-year-old challenged herself to try out for the Mr and Miss Fiji competition.

For a first-timer on stage, Singh won gold in the women’s bikini category at the 2018 Mr and Miss Fiji show at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva on Saturday.

“I was overwhelmed after scooping the first prize for my category and this is a challenge to young women out there that there is nothing wrong with taking up the sport,” she said.

“Bodybuilding is a sport and is part of living a healthy lifestyle, if I can do it so can you.”
