Local Bodybuilder Places at Olympia
A bikini bodybuilder from Biloxi is recovering after coming in 16th place at a world-wide competition.
Bikini professional athlete Brittany Taylor took the stage for our state, out of 43 other qualifiers at the International Fitness Competition Olympia which took place in Las Vegas over the weekend.
Taylor and her personal trainer Rashad Roper, both Biloxi residents, were the only Mississippians in the entire competition.
News 25 caught up with Roper who was already back at the gym today. “It was kind of like an honor because people was asking us like ‘hey, how’s the culture there?’ Kind of like we were from a foreign town or something. It was fun because those people did not expect us to be coming all the way from Mississippi. I think we definitely put Mississippi on the map.”
Brittany Taylor is the first Mississippian in history to qualify for this competition.
