Ms. Namita Nayyar: Tell us how you felt before and after wining the 1st place at South American Championship in women bodybuilding?
Ms. Monica Martin: It was a hard competition for me. In my country, the President of the National Federation forced me to participate a second time in all the competitions I had already won the prior year. This was to allow me to compete at the Ibero and South American show in Bolivia. This was wrong, because I already qualified to compete in the South American. I could have rested the whole year and prepared for only this competition. Thus I would arrive in my best condition. Instead I had to compete all the shows I had won already.
It made me really tired with all the traveling and diet. My body was feeling depleted from lack of food and sleep. The hotel the federation hosted the athletes was really awful. It didn’t have any clean water to drink; the food they offered was nasty. It was cooked chicken with skin and feather… I think they tried to sabotage the athletes of other countries… I was so exhausted at the day of the contest in my room, all I wanted at that moment was to leave and go home. I had no more energy to fight.
But all of a sudden I realized that I already went so far, and I was so close to achieving my goal… I stopped focusing on the negative side of the trip and just focused to win. I changed my attitude. I put on nice make up, brushed my hair, put on my suit. I then looked at myself in the mirror. I was looking gorgeous. I then said to myself: I’m ready to step on stage to get my trophy! And I won.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Elaborate about your experience when you won the Brazilian National Championship and became an active promoter of bodybuilding in your country?
Ms. Monica Martin: It was a wonderful experience to win my first National show. The years I lived and competed in Brazil I was a vivid promoter of women’s bodybuilding.
I feel very happy for the time I promoted bodybuilding at the national level in Brazil. But am even happier for opening the doors to all the female bodybuilders from Brazil. It helped introducing them to the international fitness world. Today there are many female fitness athletes competing at pro level.
