Wow, what a weekend! I am overwhelmed by this Olympia experience.

I want to thank so many people that contributed to making this unforgettable : Dylan Armbrust, my trainer, thanks for believing in me and all the support I have got. Everybody in the Armbrust Pro gym, my second home, thanks for all the push and encouragement (and sorry if I missed saying hi in the last couple of weeks). All the Denver/Armbrust Pro Gym crew that were in Vegas, you were fantastic, all your warmth and love gave me wings.
Phil Heath, our Mr Olympia, whose presence in the same gym where I train alone motivated me to push harder and who's 'lion' attitude in defending his title was magic to witness. His wife, Jennifer Heath, whose year has been patched with hardships, having been diagnosed with breast cancer and fighting through this all till this point where she is cancer free: her own battle positively inspired me as to what human kind can endure and fight back.
Sean Marshall, thanks for the support and patience.
Sara Hurrle Ifbb PhysiquePro, I am proud of you, your 3rd place in the first Ms Physique Olympia ever is a huge achievement.
I want to thank all my clients who patiently put up with me getting their training on hold for the last rough stretch of my prep.
My dear friends who were there present to see me or wrote me to encourage me during the contest phase, my fans who stopped by, everybody who wrote me to congratulate me.
This runner-up placing is a tremendous personal achievement and I am grateful for having got such a wonderful gift. I know I wouldn't have got it without all the details and the right people at the right times in my life so thank you all.
It will take just a little more till I get back to all of you but I will do it.
Thanks for all your love,
