In recent years there has been a surge of competitors who have successfully moved from women's physique to women's bodybuilding – including, of course, Andrea Shaw, who won both the Rising Phoenix and the Ms. Olympia last year. Inspired by their success, there will be another wave of contestants making the transition to bodybuilding for women this year.
Three of them are new brand ambassadors for Wings of Strength: Julia Föry, Sheena Ohlig and Sheikha Nguyen. The goal of the brand ambassador program that Wings of Strength launched in 2019 was to empower women in bodybuilding by giving female bodybuilders the opportunity to create a community – a "sisterhood," as Alex Sacasa of Wings of Strength puts it.
Look out for these three up and coming competitors from around the world on stage this year!
