Diversity comes in all shapes and sizes in the body sports, and this year we celebrate yet another first.
Amanda Loy, a 22-year-old nursing student from Scottsdale, Arizona, believes she is the first female little person ever to compete in figure.
She was born with hypochondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. At 4’ and 72 pounds she took fourth (out of 10) at her first show, the ’14 Natural Western USA, and then tossed her bikini cross country into the tough New York Metropolitan Championships for another fourth-place landing.
Now, there’s a girl with spunk. I’ve got a feeling it’s not the last bow Amanda will be taking on an NPC stage.
